* Series/TrueDetective: Detective Rustin Cohle is full of these, constantly going on about the meaninglessness of life. If it weren't for Matthew McConaughty's good acting, then it would almost get annoying.

* The cop protagonist gives one for society at the end of ''The Stone Killer'' (1973), about how the police are fighting an unstoppable tide of crime and violence. It doesn't quite work as the cop is played by Creator/CharlesBronson, and even the unstoppable tides of history would find it difficult to erode his stoic features.

A Despair Speech would be done by a character to show that they have crossed the DespairEventHorizon. The character is winding up his/her own lack of chances, desperation and, sometimes, remorse for something he/she could have done or said before. If said character is a criminal, his/her confession can become a Despair Speech. Be careful when writing this: done too much or badly, and it becomes {{Wangst}}.
