Yes, I get suckerpunched emotionally like that from time to time. It seems like the point of any art form, even if it's not well-executed, is to evoke emotions in the audience. Movies and television are sooooo good at that. Certain songs will do that to me too.
I'm sorry your dad doesn't show you very much affection. My dad has always been that way with me too. I certainly understand your desire to feel more warmth from him. If you're like me then thinking about your relationship with your dad brings up a lot of feelings of sadness, insecurity, resentment and so forth. If I may offer one piece of advice though, passing on some wisdom that was given to me recently, I would caution you against drawing any conclusions about why your dad is the way he is. The way my dad interacts with me has very little to do with me. Trying to change my dad means making my happiness dependent on him and that's a bad plan. I can remind him that I'm open to a deeper relationship with him, but his response has almost nothing to do with me. I'm an adult now and I can build my own life, being involved with people who generally treat me the way I want to be treated.
Still, I know how much that stings when it's your own dad. I get it.
Be kind; everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.
