Ever Notice

Ever notice how many heroes in film resemble idealised versions of the director’s own view of himself?

Watching scanners it struck me how not the Scanner but the psychiatrist helping him (and interpreting the film for us) looks quite a bit like a more filled out benevolent version of the contemporary Cronenberg. There are other examples – even Star Wars 1977 had this element.

Interesting.
