Thompson on Hollywood
Mel Gibson walked the red carpet at Cannes, shunned the press conference, but sat down for his only U.S. Cannes interview with a friendly interlocutor, Variety editor Tim Gray (on video below).

Gibson talks about seeing Jodie Foster's The Beaver for the first time with an audience at Cannes and his return to acting after an eight-year break playing a character who finds an unusual way of surviving depression: "It's spiritual in a weird way," he said. "We all go through things that are hard to bear. You've got to get through it." And he plans to return to directing: "That's my favorite job standing up," he says. Anything else about his life to discuss? "Life? You don't want to hear about my three-ring circus," he replied.

    ----Gibson should STOP with the messing around and
    sideshow DIS--tractions. Gibson should start steering
    for the rendezvous of his very life --theawesomly relevant,
    EUGENICS 'unfriendly' ------KOREAN WAR-------.
    AS the REAL nature of the Globalism and EUGENICS
    age-enda emerges, and as sinister role in delivering
    soft porn/ demoralization/ tech worship and predictive
    programming for this age-enda----we NEED some
    serious push back from the LAST man in Hollywood
