I keep trying to figure out the potential symbolism behind that hair. The Coen brothers are nothing if not all about allegory and symbols (Raising Arizona, Miller's Crossing, Fargo, O Brother, Where Art Thou?), but I am coming up with nothing other than that 'do is what makes the character homicidal.
I've seen Javier in other

Ahhh. Mucho mejor.
