A long way down
Just before I go

Any other movies about suicide that is really good?

By the way I love a quote from "just before I go"
Greta: Why do you wanna kill yourself? (or something like that)
Ted: I´m just tired of thinking of reasons not to.

I like the documentary "The Suicide Tourist" it's about a guy with ALS who goes through with Digitas and goes over to Switzerland (not Sweden, right?) and it follows the whole process from start to finish. It's really good!

I just watched the trailer, I was looking for movies not documentaries mainly where it´s not because a decease that will kill them but because they just want out of life like the two movies I mentioned.

Rats and Bullies, maybe? That's apparently a festival darling and has great critic reception.

EDIT: Hadn't seen the following post about non-documentaries, sorry. Anyway, I think this one is worth a watch.

Have you seen adaptation it is'n abut suicide per say
however the film does a fair job of making the audience wish the lead character would kill himself.

Adaptation is an amazing movie for completely different reasons though. Between that and Leaving Las Vegas, Nic Cage cemented himself as a great actor.

And then he starred in the Wicker Man remake.

Arizona Dream.

Well, it's not about suicide per se, but the suicidal girl in that movie kills herself just after things get better, in a brief moment of happiness.

Oh... almost forgot -my favorite Twilight Zone
A Stop At Willoughby
A guy hates his life, work, horrid wife and his commute on a train to and from work he dreams of a peaceful wonderful life in a town called Willoughby. His final dream he decides to get off the train and live in Willoughby. Then it shows the police talking about the guy that suicided by jumping from the train. The hearse said Willoughby and Sons Funeral Home

Also there's the good fallback of "Girl, Interrupted" (was one of my favourite movies when it came out in 99 I love Angelina Jolie and she does the "cray cray" SOOOO WELL in this movie). Not precisely about suicide (like it doesn't end in suicide of main character) but someone DOES commit suicide and most of the people in it are some level of suicidal (they're on a psych ward). I freaking LOVE that movie.

Jolie was the best thing about Girl, Interrupted. (Strangely, Brad Pitt had his most famous role in the same year.)

I watched a movie called suicide room that I thought was good.
I remember this movie. It is good.

The Hours is a standout for me.
