    melancholia is a very true description of depression = painfully so. It is also a wonderfully weird movie.

    So true Sleepy.

    Oh for non-fiction I would also recommend:

    Andrew Solomon, The Noonday Demon. A wonderful and moving exploration of depression that's part memoir and part pop-science.

    And also the documentary Titicut Follies. Quite disturbing but a remarkable film about how mentally ill people were treated (at least in America) until very recently)
