1) Movie hasn't cliches...

2) Movie hasn't unnecessary sex scenes.

3) Good side don't win in the end. Bad side should win..

4) Movie should be on gloomy theme..

Harry Potter?

It has some clichés but no unnecessary romance IMO

Good side does win, but bad side has a lot of wining moments.

It is gloomy.

Any movie in particular? action? drama? thriller? horror? else?

A few of my personal top favourites came to mind--

Gone Girl, no cliché imo, got one powerful scene that involve sex but I would argue its necessary as part of character defining, not gonna comment on good/side bad side because of spoilers, but oh boy! its darn worth it! and lastly, gloomy theme, check!

Nightcrawler, echo of Gone Girl in very different way, checks all four boxes (hmm I can't remember any pandering sex scene in)...

Dark Knight. also Checks all four boxes....yes, joker won imo.

Most film noir should do it. If you want a specific recommendation, Chinatown has one of the most soul-crushingly depressing endings I've seen.

Another one is Sicario. Good has no place in that story.

V for Vendetta.

The Good is also The Bad in This Movie.

Fist of the North Star anime.

***Spoilers***

In the epic final fight the bad guy absolutely beats the piss out of him, and then walks away.

Might be some nude scene I’m forgetting, but it’s pretty gloomy Overall.

  • We Need to Talk About Kevin <- about an awful child you wan't to kill !
  • The Wave (2008 movie) <- a teacher shows a class how Nazies went to power
  • Usual Suspects <- one of my favorit ever movie
  • Fargo <- it's half a comedy, half a movie with kills everywhere
  • Braindead (by Peter Jackson) <- I couldn't finish it

Have fun

The Dark Knight (2008)

Most people should have watched this, it being the best superhero movie of all time. The Joker does win at the end, if you think about it. Gloomy theme for sure. Not sure about cliches.
