Mel Gibson and Jodi Foster

August 25, 2011

I don’t normally do movie reviews but I just saw The Beaver.

Its a movie about mental health problems. A close friend of mine has suffered from mental health problems for years. He and those who have stuck with him have been through the ringer. The movie creates a kind of surreal world paralleling the ‘normal’ world in which Gibson’s character finds himself. He is drowning. And he’s fighting to not go under. Jodi Foster is a wonderful director. The acting in the film is terrific. And Mel Gibson. Its like you’re looking into the head of a man going through hell. Gibson’s personal and professional life may be a mess but man, the guy can act.
