The Lord of the Hair
Just caught the last of the trilogy. Which it's hard not be compelled by even at 4 plus hours. But watching the third one, I have my usual distracation, and I wonder: does anyone else think that the real reason for the Lord of the Rings movies is actually to perpetrate Peter Jackson's hair? Here, he must be directing Bernard Hill to get a perm, dont you think? "Sorry pal, long enough, but not nearly curly or greasy enough. Get back in the make-up tent right away." (Check out the background of this photo, btw - even the crew are in it.) Even in Mordor they conform to The Style. Doubt if you want, but I remain convinced.
