Mel Gibson, the greatest master of exploitation since Alfred Hitchcock.
For those among us who choose to believe lies, the Jews at Wikipedia have an article about Mel Gibson .
“The allegation that I am anti-Semitic is the biggest lie since the Holocaust!”
~ Mel Gibson

Mel Gerard Gibson (born January 3, 1956) is an American-Australian actor, film director, torturer, producer, racist and screenwriter. He is also known internationally by his titles: "Und Fuhrer" in Germany, "That guy who saved us from Invasion" in Scotland, "That guy who ruined our Invasion" in England, "Mr. Guy" in Hollywood, and "Mad Mel" in Australia. Born in Peekskill, New York, Gibson moved with his parents to Sydney when he was 12 years old and later studied acting at the National Institute of Dramatic Art.

After appearing in the Mad Max and Lethal Weapon series, Gibson went on to direct and star in the Academy Award-winning Braveheart. Gibson's direction of Braveheart made him the sixth actor-turned-filmmaker to receive an Academy Award for Best Director, along with fellow racist and hatemongerer, Clint Eastwood. Gibson is also an advocate of using the film-making technique, Exploitation, in order to sell a film. In 2004, he directed and produced The Passion of the Christ, a controversial but successful film that portrayed the last hours of the life of Jesus Christ in the most brutal fashion. He is currently filming the highly anticipated sequel, The Passion of the Christ II: The Semites Strike Back. The movies he has acted in have grossed out huge numbers of audiences more than two billion dollars in the US alone.

Early Life

An old photo.

Gibson was born in Peekskill, New York, the sixth of eleven children in a stereotypically large Irish Catholic family. Gibson's first name comes from Saint Mel, the fifth-century Irish saint, and founder of Gibson's native disease, Alcoholism. Because of his mother's Irish nationality, Gibson holds dual Irish and American citizenship. At the age of 12, Gibson was forced to move with his family to Sydney after his father's shop was forced into foreclosure by a Jewish shylock who had opened a similar store next door as part of his international conglomerate.

Gibson was educated by members of the Congregation of Christian Brothers at St. Leo's Catholic College in Wahroonga, New South Wales, during his high school years. Past records indicate Gibson was suspended for a week after he was caught bullying a Jewish student who had brought in a dreidel to show the class. Aside from a few similar misbehaviour offences, he was a very successful academic achiever and highly popular. His Rugby team-mates bestowed upon him the nickname, "Mad Mel", in recognition of his complete lack of fear when he would single-handedly charge an entire squad of Rugby players.

Career

The Gibmeister in his prime.

Gibson gained very favorable notices from film critics and audiences when he first entered the cinematic scene, as well as comparisons to several classic movie stars. In 1982, Oscar Wilde, along with approximately two thirds of the world's female population to say "dammmnnnnn, that white boy is TOO fine." Gibson has also been likened to “a combination of Clark Gable, Humphrey Bogart, and a hint of Adolf Hitler.”

Gibson's physical appearance made him a natural for leading male roles in action projects such as the Mad Max series of films, Peter Weir's Gallipoli, and the "Lethal Weapon" series of films. Later, Gibson expanded into a variety of acting projects including human dramas such as Hamlet, and comedic roles such as those in Maverick and What Women Want. His most artistic and financial success came with films where he expanded beyond acting into directing and producing, such as 1993's The Man Without a Face, 1995's Braveheart, 2000's The Patriot, 2004's The Passion of the Christ and 2006's Apocalypto.

Some people have noted that Mel Gibson's films are designed to exploit a certain social phenomenon in order to gain massive ticket sales. Mel Gibson has confirmed this tactic, but justifies its use by saying

"Other producers and film-makers, such as... oh, I don't know, Steven Spielberg, Judd Apatow, Harvey Weinstein, James L Brooks, Jerry Bruckheimer, Larry David, Charlie Kaufman, Stanley Kubrick, John Landis, Carl Reiner, Eli Roth, Adam Sandler, Oliver Stone, Josh Schwartz,
Joel Silver, Woody Allen, Nora Ephron, Harold Ramis, Sam Raimi, Joel Schumacher, Bryan Singer and the Coen Brothers are just jealous that they didn't think of it first.

Mel Gibson on Exploitation

Perhaps of greater note is what films Mel Gibson DIDN'T do. Gibson was considered for roles in Batman (presumably as The Joker), GoldenEye (as General Auromov), Amadeus, The Golden Child, X-Men (as Professor X), Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (as Friar Tuck), Runaway Bride (as Richard Gere). Actor Sean Connery once suggested Gibson should play the next James Bond to Connery's M. Gibson turned down the role, reportedly because he feared Sean Connery would show him how a real Scottish person fights.

Landmark Films

Mad Max series

Those homosexuals don't stand a chance...

Gibson got his breakthrough role as the leather-clad post-apocalyptic survivor and bad motherfucker in George Miller's Mad Max. The independently-financed blockbuster earned Gibson $15,000 and helped to make him an international star everywhere but in the United States, where the actors' Australian accents were dubbed with American accents due to the general ethnocentrism and ignorance of the American people. While poorly filmed, paced and written, the original film went on to spawn two much better sequels.

Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior was a huge success and had infinitely refined production values. The Road Warrior's story of Mad Max hunting down and slaughtering a group of marauding neo-nazi homosexuals hit a note with the American public, who at the time were undergoing the 1981 AIDS scare, and subsequently had an intense hatred of gay people.

Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome also saw Gibson bringing down a Black Feminist tyrant played by none other than Tina Turner, once again exploiting the American Public's fears.

A fourth movie, Mad Max 4: Fury Road, is in development, but both Gibson and George Miller have indicated that the starring role would go to a younger actor who is less hated by the American public. It is speculated that this movie will be absolutely shit out in 2011.

Seeing as this is THE most powerful handgun in the world, you've just gotta ask yourself one question...
Do ya feel lucky, Kike? Well, do ya?

Lethal Weapon series

Gibson moved into more mainstream commercial filmmaking with the popular interracial buddy cop series Lethal Weapon, which began with the 1987 original. In the films he played LAPD Detective Martin Riggs, a recently widowed Vietnam veteran with a death wish, a penchant for violence and gunplay, and a leading pioneer of the mullet. Like many great film-makers, his hair is used as a symbol for the craziness that dwells within. In the films, he is partnered with a reserved, African-American family man named Roger Murtaugh (Danny Glover).

Gibson once again hooked into an external phenomenon to exploit audiences into watching his movies. This time, Gibson used the new and unexpected emergence of racial acceptance to sell his movie to audiences. Following the success of Lethal Weapon, director Richard Donner and principal cast revisited the lovable and socially open-minded characters in three sequels, Lethal Weapon 2 (1989), Lethal Weapon 3 (1993), and Lethal Weapon 4 (1998). This series would come to exemplify the subgenre of the buddy film.

Hamlet

Shortly after making Lethal Weapon 2, Gibson randomly decided to star in Franco Zeffirelli's Hamlet. Apparently Gibson did not realise this film was an adaptation of a classic Shakespearean play, if not one of the greatest plays in the world. Fortunately, the film also exploited cinema audiences wanting to watch Gibson in a film where he speaketh Olde English.

As is expected with any Mel Gibson exploitation film, Hamlet met with critical and marketing success and remains steady in DVD sales. It also marked the transformation of Mel Gibson from action hero to serious actor and filmmaker.

Braveheart

So it's settled then.
No Jews and No Blacks shall ever set foot in Scotland again...

Mel Gibson directed, produced, and starred in Braveheart, an epic telling of the legendary Race War led by Sir William Wallace, a 13th century martyr who wished to free Scotland from the tri-rule tyranny of the Jews, the Blacks, and the English. Exploiting American audience's hatred of English people due to IRA sympathies at the time, the film was also a critical and commercial success. Gibson received two Academy Awards, Best Director and Best Picture for his second directorial effort. Braveheart influenced the Scottish nationalism movement (see Skinheads) and helped to revive the film genre of the historical epic. The Battle of Stirling sequence in Braveheart is considered by critics to be one of the all-time best directed race-war battle scenes.

The Passion of the Christ

Gibson directed, produced, co-wrote, and self-funded the 2004 film The Passion of the Christ, which chronicled the passion and death of Jesus Christ. The cast spoke the languages of Aramaic, Latin, and Hebrew. Although Gibson originally announced his intention to release the film without subtitles; he realised that only Jewish people would be able to understand it, and sor relented on this point for theatrical exhibition. This time, Gibson created a three-way exploitation campaign in his quest to create the highest grossing film of all time, and knock that poncey Titanic movie from the top spot. He exploited the new wave of Torture porn that had become popular with the Saw and Hostel series. He also exploited the recession of spirituality that had been festering within the heart of the White community. And finally, he exploited the growing hatred of Jewish people that had been re-emerging the world over. The movie grossed US$611,899,420 worldwide and $370,782,930 in the US alone, surpassing any motion picture starring Gibson. It became the eighth highest-grossing film in history and the highest-grossing rated R film of all time.

Gibson is currently in back-to-back production of two sequels, Passion of the Christ II: The Semites Strike Back, and Passion of the Christ III: Return of the Catholics.

Personal Life

Family

In-keeping with his Irish Catholic heritage, Gibson has one daughter, six sons, and two grandchildren (for now). After nearly three years of separation, Robyn Gibson filed for divorce on April 13, 2009, citing irreconcilable differences, as she could not abide his irrational, almost bipolar behaviour, as well as being uncomfortable with the considerable amount of Nazi paraphernalia that decorated the house.

Gibson's girlfriend, the German and notably Aryan musician Oksana Grigorieva, has a son with former boyfriend, actor Timothy Dalton. On October 30, 2009, Grigorieva gave birth to their daughter, Lucia.

Hobbies and Past times

Gibson is an avid bottle cap collector, and owns an underground vault to store his expansive collection, as well as keep it hidden from an as yet unidentified race of sub-human scum who like to horde such valuable objects to satisfy their innate greed. He has since denied speculation that the race of creatures he referred to are Dwarves.

Gibson is also an enthusiastic member and advocate of the Aryan Bowling League. He has used it as an example of how like-minded people getting together can accomplish things that have not been dreamed possible since the 1930's.

Anti-Semitism

Rumours have plagued the production of The Passion of the Christ since Mel Gibson first conceived the idea. He reportedly started pitching the film to studio executives as "a cross between Jesus' arms." Development of the film was also noted by the cast and crew to be highly bizarre. Gibson's unorthodox direction brought questions to many people's minds. He would regularly interrupt scene yelling:

"Cut. Cut. What the Fuck?! Is that the worst beating Allah's gonna get? Well, fuck you all! This fucking punching bag died for our sins, you fucking faggots!! So kick the shit outta him some more!!"
Mel Gibson on directing The Passion of the Christ.

Gibson later held a press conference to address these allegations made against him.

Gibson: Anti-Semetic?! ME ?! Never, I have thousands of Jews hanging around my house.
Audience gasps.
Gibson: What? To prove that I'm not anti-Semitic, this year I'm throwing an open invitation Hanukkah Pig Roast.
A rabbi in the audience passes out.

Mel was very displeased with the first draft of the movie. "No, no, no!!!" he was quoted by me as yelling. "That's not nearly anti-Semitic enough! Really, you have to make it look like it's the Jews' fault! I'm paying for this horseshit; and this is my religion; and this is America; and I'm from the same town as Russell Crowe."

Mel, in the end, said that his heathenistic appetite was mildly-to-somewhat satisfied, but he didn't intend to make an epic heart-touching movie. As he simply explained while attending a hunting party in Jerusalem;

“I just wanted to show Jesus getting fucked up! That should tell you a lot about Christianity, eh?”
