    "The final scenes of 'Fight Club' when everything is revealed. I watched it a year ago, and I still find myself thinking about it. Sometimes I'm not doing anything, and I'll get to thinking if I am myself or if the world that I imagine is in fact real or if the best friend I had really existed." - Vivian Nagy

    4. Kids being ground up in "Another Brick in the Wall."

    "It's not really a movie, but a music video by Pink Floyd, 'Another Brick in the Wall.' When the children fall into the meat grinder and out comes meat in the shape of sausages. I watched this clip for the first time at age 6, and I was sick and felt really uncomfortable... even today I feel nauseous just recalling it, literally." - Manuh Macedo

    5. The birth of the baby in "Mother!."

    "The beginning scene of the movie 'Ghost Ship' where the people are cut in two. Then, in the same film, the scene with the canned food full of maggots. I have a phobia of maggots, which I found out by watching this movie. Plus, I was 11 years old and the teacher showed the movie in school." - Gabriella Porto

    "Since I hate spoilers, I won't say it here in case someone is interested in watching it (it's worth it, really). But for those who have seen it, you know what I'm talking about. I didn't know what to do or how to react for quite some time after I finished watching the movie. It is very, very tense and sad." - Cecília Bezerra

    9. The ending scene of "Dancer in the Dark."

    10. The kidnapping scene in "Nocturnal Animals."

    Reprodução/ Focus Features

    "In 'Nocturnal Animals', when they show the robbery/kidnapping/rape scenes and you don't know if it's just a story or if it really happened. My heart stopped beating for at least 10 minutes." - Philip Nascimento

    11. Sophie's choice in "Sophie's Choice."

    Incorporated Television Company (ITC) / Via media.giphy.com

    "The ending scene of 'Sophie's Choice'. I can't imagine the pain that mother felt making that choice. The few times I've rewatched the movie, I always skip that part." - Matheus Amorim Caliman

    12. The daughter's funeral scene in "The Shack."

    Summit Entertainment / Via imdb.com

    13. The murder in "We Need to Talk About Kevin."

    BBC Films

    "The scene where she meets her husband and daughter and when Kevin goes to school to kill his classmates. I watched with my hands in front of my eyes." -Julia Kao

    14. The reunion of Mia and Sebastian in "La La Land."

    Summit Entertainment / Via media.giphy.com

    "In 'La La Land', when Mia reunites with Sebastian after years...leading to a mini- film of how it would have been like if they stayed together. Just devastated. I found it to be a lot like real life, where what people imagine isn't always what happens. That's how life is, so I loved the movie." - Thainá Quitete
