I don’t know how I missed it until now, but this David Poland interview with Mel Gibson has been online since January 2017. It’s fascinating stuff indeed. Gibson is obviously passionate about the filmmaking process (and all the pitfalls it involves) and he puts this across in a wonderfully articulate way here. There’s some great information on the making of Braveheart and its struggles, but there’s much more to be had on Gibson’s directing and acting work in this hour-long interview.
Check it out.
