John Turturro's beard


I love Turturro, but damn, his "beard" irritates the hell out of me here. In addition to the fact that you rarely see facial hair groomed in such a manner, it just looks so bloody uncomfortable. My body convulses with itching whenever he appears on screen with that massive growth on the underside of his face.

Is anybody else in agreement?

In vino veritas.

In the movie it does look rather odd. Sort of like a weird fabric patch or growth. Now when I see that its the only thing I can think about. It's like its its own universe. Looks kinda, not sure if this is the right word, synthetic.

As opposed to "organic", then I'd say that's accurate.

Anyone ever notice that at the end of the film his beard is actually shaved off!?

Presumably he was working a case in non-uniform?

I noticed that too at the end. Turturro had what is called a half goatee when the mustache doesn't connect to the hair under the chin.

Along with the excessive amounts of alcohol consumption seen in the film, Turturro’s beard is hands down the most off-putting thing in “State of Grace.” Haha

His appearance itself is cool obviously, but his artificial beard CAN be distracting.
