A sequence in which it is shown that, while time is passing, the protagonist is feeling sad and alone. Opposite of the GoodTimesMontage. In fact, some films will juxtapose a Sad Times Montage with a Good Times Montage earlier in the film. Can overlap with the LostLoveMontage, with both sides of the lost love being sad, separately. Especially if there's an overlap with the LostLoveMontage, a CradleOfLoneliness may be part of it.
