Hey R - yes sometimes this world is as sh* tty as it seems, but then sometimes a kid like you comes around and makes it a little less so. The hope is that someday a lot of you guys will come around and save the day from the ones from my generation that really fu$$ed things up. Maybe their are a few of us around that could be a help to you youngsters rather than a hindrance. It.s just one at a time, R. You're one of the good ones. Have a great start to your new year and then I hope that it gets better from there.

Chris McCandless in Into The Wild
May in the independent horror movie May
the boy in wonderful kids film The Bridge To Terabithia
the girl in surreal Brit low budget psycho horror Paperhouse
the boy in old film Kes
Robinson Crusoe!!!

and lastly all the characters in Asian horror film Kairo (Pulse) the central theme is loneliness...lots of people in the film but there are no real connections...even the ghosts are motivated with connecting

also the man in I Am Legend, The Last Man On Earth

Great List!

My favs are Narrator ("Fight Club") and Travis ("Taxi Driver.")

Suggestions (excluding the great ones xxixxii has already added)

1. The guy in "Spider" (played by Ralph Fiennes as an adult, and Bradley Hall as a kid)

2. The violent ex-interrogator in "Red, White, & Blue" (Noah Taylor)

3. The stuttering voyeur in "Buddy Boy" (Aidan Gillen)

4. John Locke (Terry O'Quinn) in "Lost"

5. The boy with Asperger's in "Ben X" (Greg Timmermans)

Depressingly nice list!

Posted: 4 years, 5 months ago at May 24 16:56
Wiig? Look at her again, please!


Great list! BTW, This is how i see these things - http://www.listal.com/list/rejected

Brilliant choices !
"Trent Reznor" is creepy, as Henry Spencer.
What can I say about Carole Ledoux ? I love her !
