Would Passion Of The Christ count? When I saw it in the theatre, it seemed that nearly everybody there was full of tears, although the ending got a huge round of applause.

Also, no one has mentioned Larry Clark's Bully yet.

The Passion of the Christ! Why did they have to kill poor ol' Jesus? If he would have lived, then everyone would have to pay for their sins which makes more sense...

Here are some other ones:
Schindler's List
Crossroads
Hotel Rwanda
New York Minute
Seven
Blonde Ambition
Platoon
Little Black Book

The 78 version of Invasion of the Body Snatchers is pretty tragic considering the ending and all.

Aliens 3 too.

Could you please use spoiler tags before giving away the end of a movie?

Bambi grows up to be the leader of the herd.
Hence the tragedy, any deer with a rack that size should be mounted on someone's wall, not free to roam around in the woods.
