A born natural at being a bit of a loony, this is Mel Gibson attempt at coming back from his less than popular phase with Jodie Foster‘s The Beaver — about a troubled husband and executive who adopts a beaver hand-puppet as his sole means of communicating to the world. Sound weird enough?
Hmm sounds very Gibson, almost a self portrayal? Gibson’s character, Walter Black is a man plagued by his demons – who after falling into depression loses touch with his family. Using a beaver hand-puppet Walter attempts to re-connect himself with his family, and to find himself using the puppet as a means of communication with the world.
Hey I’m willing to give it a try, because in all honesty if the movie is half as good as the trailer then I’m sold! Quirky and wacky = my kind of movie! Let me know what you think in the comments section. As always enjoy!
