The Persistence of Hair

Have you ever noticed that when a film flashes back to a character's childhood, that person's haircut is often in the same style the present-day character has? I'm sure I could find plenty of examples if I so desired. I just happened to make this observation while cutting video for tomorrow's NOW PLAYING. To tease our February 3rd show, I edited a piece from THE BUTTERFLY EFFECT Ashton Kutcher's childhood character has a haircut that mirrors him as an adult. Some guys find a style they like and stick with it, but this movie shorthand seems really silly in this particular case.

About time for me to wrap up work on the show. Now I can go home and find out what's going on in the Iowa caucuses.
