I don't want to encourage anyone but, speaking of Dominic...

...there are two things I can't get out of my mind. 
One is Silenzio's and rrp's humor.  The other is...


...aren't dots useful?

I think most of us guy's identify with the character's in this film when they were kids. I'm not saying we partaken in crime, I'm just saying the way they act around eachother, how they fall in love and are attracted with girls for the first time.

Well, I can agree with that.

I can identify with Noodles because we both have giant noodles.

That's my problem too. I like Noodles, but the characters are not so lovable as in other Leone films. If I think better - there are very few Prohibition movies in I really like the characters. (Except Untouchables and Mobsters). Great movies there are, but I can't feel so much sympathy for gangsters as for the Ol' West heroes. Western heroes are a differend kind. "The ancient race". Gangsters are capitalists. The are not doomed to die out like western heroes.
I can identify with Billy the Kid, but can't with Al Capone or Dillinger. They are tough and badass, but not so sympathetic.
But it's different with the gangsters/cops of the noirs who have something to do with Death, see Bogie's characters or Melville's heroes.

True. O0

But I don't think it's a matter of identifying, at least not for me. I don't identify to Noodles as much I identify to Tuco for example. But still Noodles is my favorite character of all Leone characters. Yes MWNN is cool and Tuco is funny but Noodles is just so real and honest portray of a humanbeing. I like him because many of his acts are not logical (why does he Rape Deborah?). People do stupid and illogical things because they are not throughout brain but emotions too. Plus, to me antagonist is in most cases more interesting than the protagonist (Frank > Harmonica).

Maybe we're not talking about identifying with a character, but just liking one.

I don't honestly like even one in OUATIA.
