royal tenenbaums: whats up with Mordecai?
 
what does he represent? Doesn't the name mean harbinger of death? Why does he turn white?

what's up with the tenenbaums threads coming out now? ;)

i think mordecai was symbolic of most of the family. he left when most of them did and returned when most of them did. the hair changing white was explained, but i see it as figurative of the others changing due to some traumatic experience and returning as well.

That's a great answer. I never thought much about it.
