i couldnt find this, so i started it...

have you ever been watching a movie and thought...wow...this character is just like me, maybe even looks like me....for me, it's:

Joel Barish in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
or
Gilbert Grape in What's Eating Gilbert Grape
Did I just get cock-blocked by Bob Saget?

There has to be a time when you were watching a movie and you felt a character was an exact portrayal of you on screen (or at least someone you identified with). Who was it?: Seymour (Steve Buscemi) in "Ghost World."

Jim Kurring in Magnolia
Quoyle in The Shipping News
Sydney in Hard Eight
Eugene in Pay it Forward
David Aames in Vanilla Sky

Sometimes, the Travis Bickle feeling gets into me...  :?  After beeing robbed two times with a gun, I'm growing more and more sick with some of the scum around. Luckily, I also have this Barry Egan side which kind of balances and keeps me from being a real jerk sometimes.

Also, I'm a lot like High Fidelity's Rob Gordon, with the exception that girls find John Cusack attractive. Watching this movie is like watching myself sometimes.

I get the same thing with james stewart
"In Serbia a lot of people hate me because they want to westernise, not understanding that the western world is bipolar, with very good things and very bad things. Since they don't have experience of the west, they even believe that western shit is pie."

Sometimes Barry Egan/Joel Barish, or Matthew from Dreamers, or Charlotte from Lost in Translation, sometimes even Bob Harris, or The Dude. I have a vast array of moods. But the  question is: Are the characters like us, or do we subconsciously act (or think we act) like our favorite characters?
