Re: Your go to?

I think a go-to doesn't need to be The Perfect Clip encompassing everything one likes about crying. It just needs to be something you go 'imma go watch that clip, damn that was good' or whatever.

In that case, the clip from Season Six of "Desperate Romantics" where (SPOILER ALERT) Rossetti finds his wife dead ​is a good one for me. It captures the quick turnaround of emotion from upbeat to frantic to despair - and Aiden Turner is an excellent crier!

Re: Your go to?

A few more of my favorites:
Speaking of Sam Rockwell, one of my go-to's has to be a scene in Moon.
The well-loved 'Jesse loses his shit in Walter's arms' scene of course, but also the  'Blood Money' episode table read. Aaron Paul, conjuring tears during a table read. I'm not sure it was even in the script.
Michael Fassbender in Shame and, oddly enough, that brief moment in the fake 'David 8' commercial promo for Prometheus.
Ewan McGregor, particularly his phone call scene in The lmpossible
pretty much anytime RDJ cries

I doubt it was because if you watch the actual episode he plays the scene alot different.  No crying at all. And in my opinion the non crying version makes more sense as far as the character's emotional state at the time (ie: kind of numb) it's almost as if right before he went to the table read he'd been reading up on acting/crying techniques and was eager to try them out lol.

Don't get me wrong though,  I'm very glad he did it at least for the table read cause it's pretty amazing.

Also the scene where they find the cigarette in the roomba and his confession tape

I feel like we need to send these men some appreciation balloons for being such good criers.

Oh yeah, I saw that scene (and posted it somewhere in "Crying Videos," I think).  As a big fan of the Pre-Raphaelite painters, I found it heartrending.
