<b>What it says about the characters</b>: Brolin's villainous cop in "Gangster" is all silken menace. His muscle car, leather trench coat and shellacked-in-place hair are always just so -- ergo, the mustache is too. Brolin's broken-down, shot-up and downtrodden character in "No Country," on the other hand, is all cowboy, a guy with a few dreams left but no time for frippery. His mustache is as simple and unquestionable a part of his facial landscape as tumble brush is to the plains of West Texas.
