Feagin Fail Movies

We talked in class today about movies that didn't quite conform to Feagin's idea of tragedies as works for which one's positive meta-response outweighs the negative direct-response. _Happiness_, _Requiem for a Dream_ and _White Ribbon_ were mentioned. What other notable cases have you encountered, and how did they have a troubling meta-response. _Freaks_ comes to mind for me.
