I’ve been silently (so far) watching the debate over Mel Gibson’s upcoming movie, The Passion. What is interesting for me to see is how an experienced, long-time professional like Mr. Gibson handles criticism from the media.
Here’s from Dubai Photo Media:
Gibson is not averse to dishing out venomous attacks of his own, however, with one target Frank Rich, a New York Times columnist, who implied that Gibson’s father was “a Holocaust denier”.
“I want to kill him,” Gibson said of the columnist. “I want his intestines on a stick. I want to kill his dog.”
I’m certain I don’t have to worry anymore about the degree of sensitivity with which he’s handled possible antisemitic passages in the upcoming movie. I simply have to get ready to deal with these passages.
