Christ's hairstyle

Oh, a note on hairstyles...Cavaziel looks like someone's idea of a rock star; even in the flashbacks his hair looked liked it needed shampooing.

Latest bible scholarship says this is wrong: the Jews of that time wore their hair short and neat.

I forgot to mention this--Dafoe in Last Temptation had a neat cut; in fact, all the more pious characters (except for John the Baptist) wore their hair short and neatly trimmed. Later Dafote's hair grew longer, but I took this to be a sign of his gradual breakup with orthodox Judaism.

Gibson claims to have done research. What did he read--Marvel Comics?

I'm starting to think he DID get his Satan figure from Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey...
