** Even ''Film/TheDarkKnight'' pales to ''Film/BatmanReturns'', which is set in the crappiest of {{Crapsack World}}s where Batman admits that he's as twisted and neurotic as the villains he goes after, a despicable CorruptCorporateExecutive gets away with multiple acts of murder and pollution and still remains well respected as the "Light of Gotham", and the citizenry in general are gullible, decadent, and unlikeable. Seriously, if Heath Ledger's Joker turned up in the world of ''Film/BatmanReturns'' and set up the Prisoner's Dilemma with the two ferries, they'd blow each other up before he finished talking.

* ''Film/VForVendetta'': This is set in a London turned fascist with PoliceBrutality being the order of the day. The closest thing this work has to a hero is a ByronicHero who would very much be considered a terrorist.

* ''Film/VForVendetta'': This ''Film/VForVendetta'' depicts a future where a nuclear war wiped out the Middle East, America has collapsed into pestilence, poverty and civil war, and Britain is set in controlled by a London turned fascist with PoliceBrutality being regime. Britain's only hope is an insane superhuman terrorist who wants to destroy the order of the day. The closest thing this work has to a hero is a ByronicHero who would very much be considered a terrorist.government and replace it with... [[UsefulNotes/{{Anarchism}} Erm, nothing]].

** To a lesser extent, the original 1985 Hill Valley. The gates to Marty's subdivision are covered in graffiti, the streets are filled with litter, a bum unabashedly sleeps on a bench right in town square, many of the buildings appear to be re-purposed by cheaper businesses, [[ArsonMurderJaywalking and the clock tower doesn't even work.]]

* ''Film/HighNoon'':
** Hadleyville, the town, where Marshal Kane asks for the town's help to stop a returning villain and his gang. Only his pacifist wife and a 14-year-old kid tried to help him. {{Lampshaded}} by the judge:
--> ''"This is just a dirty little village in the middle of nowhere. [[DespairEventHorizon Nothing that happens here is really important]]. [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere Now get out.]]"''
** TheWildWest in general is a crapsack world where killing is an everyday occurrence.

* ''Film/TheHumanCondition:'' set in Manchuria nearing the close of WWII - a situaion which was a RealLife living hell for soldiers and civilians.
* ''Film/HoboWithAShotgun'': "[[SarcasmMode Hope Town]]" makes most WretchedHive cities look like [[TheAndyGriffithShow Mayberry]] in comparison. Not only are the local crime lord and his two sons the epitome of evil, and not only are the cops on the take from these guys and [[PoliceBrutality viciously corrupt to boot]], the {{Gorn}} levels and general depravity by the rest of the population is through the roof. And there's only ONE good person in the film who isn't a vigilante or a victim of some kind (a police officer), and he's only on screen for a couple of seconds.

* Post-WWII Berlin in ''Film/AForeignAffair''. It's played straight at times, since some of the residents were happy when the Americans turned on the gas... so they could kill themselves, but it also shows the resilient people of Germany who are trying to repair their destroy homes, lives, and beliefs.
