MEL GIBSON: ON THE ROAD TO RECOVERY?
We’ve been wondering if Mel Gibson would be able to clean up his image after his drunken rant a few years ago. He chose the right material for his comeback– in “Edge of Darkness” he portrays an anguished father determined at all costs to solve the mystery of his daughter’s death. His character was sympathetic and decent. We were curious about what kind of reception his movie would get when we saw it at a SAG screening. At the end the audience applauded loudly when Mel’s name came up in the credits, so we assume all is somewhat forgiven.
