Dans ma peau (translates to in my skin) is a film completely about self harm. It is the weirdest film I've ever watched, it's very graphic, I guess it could be 'triggering'.

It's pretty depressing, and from what I remember the ending left me feeling crap.

But yeah if you are looking for a film about self-injury..!



strange thoughts come into your head and you better think them.

Thirteen. Although it's not really based on self harm, but does feature.

I like the mentioned movies- Girl, Interrupted, Prozac Nation (but I prefer the book), Thirteen and I want to recommend some more movies I knew and like.

28 days is about Si, addiction and therapy (rehab) and it is one of my favourite movies.

There is a French movie called "Je vais bien, ne ten fais pas" which is about depression and anorexia but unfortunately I dont know if there is an English version of it but I guess so because there is a German version of it.
Btw, this movie is another favourite movie of mine.


Mad love is about manic depression and I like it, too.

Secretary is about SI and BDSM and I like this movie, too but I guess that not everybody will like it because of the other topic ;) .



I can't control my destiny.
I trust my soul. My only goal is just to be.

I'm selfish, inpatient and a little insecure.
I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle but if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best. (Marilyn Monroe)

Cut [a documentary film created with the help of SAFE Alternatives co-founders]

Wow, I never knew Prozac Nation was a film!!

I've read the book, so I'm going to have to rent it now, hopefully it won't be a dissapointment.



I'm heaven sent. Don't you dare forget.

But yeah all of the above really...and painfull secrets (also known as secret cutting)-very graphic though.




I read somewhere... how important it is in life
not necessarily to be strong...
but to feel strong.

Girl, Interrupted rocks. I watch it every day.



Someday I'll wish upon a star
and wake up
where the clouds are far behind me
Where troubles melt like lemon drops
away above the chimney tops
that's where you'll find me

requiem for a dream.

more about drug addiction but you seem to be looking for depressing films & this one is definately up there with the best of them in that respect.

I agree - it starts off with self-harm but then turns all adult...

I watched Gothika the other night. It's not really that much related to self harm but contains a lot about mental health, and can be quite triggering.

"Secretary" involves SI - it's not the focus point, but it does play a key part in the beauty of the story (it's a romance, really). As others have said, it IS a bit adult, so mature audiences suggested. It's one of my favorite movies, so I'd definitely say go for it if you're up for a movie that's a little different.
"Girl, Interrupted" is also fantastic - I just watched it two days ago, and it's also a favorite now.

I might have to check out some of the other movies suggested here. :)

manic is a good film. i can't remember if it features self harm, but it's about teenagers in a mental institution. i think it does, but as a major part of the film.



Where can you run to escape from yourself?

HELLA GOOD
omg...
thirteen i own... i love it.
Requiem for a dream i ended up selling for drugs, and that was probably kind of a good decision considering i would've relapsed by now if i watched it again
so if u watch it and you ever did drugs like... ever, and you slammed them... DONT WATCH IT
thats actually how i relapsed like ten times cuz that movie and spun.
which is sad, cuz it should make me think, 'ew i would never do that' but i just said oh drugs, lets go get some.
stupid mistakes :/


in manic there's some self harm ya,
:[
i cried.



My little girlscout, your mouth is getting sore
Will you love me any less if I hurt you any more
