Hacksaw Ridge (2016)

War is hell.  That is perhaps never truer in film than if Mel Gibson is the director.  Mel, from when he was a massive movie star and through the turbulent past decade, has always been an actor and director who was drawn to violence and blood, for better and for worse.  1,312 more words

Initially was skeptical given my feeling towards many of Mel Gibson’s tendencies as a filmmaker, but thankfully were never too much of a bother in the case of Hacksaw Ridge. 936 more words
