Gibson Crashes Car in Malibu, Unharmed

Thompson on Hollywood

This news story about Mel Gibson crashing his Maserati into a Malibu cliffside Sunday night makes sure to say that alcohol wasn’t involved. Gibson was unhurt. The car was smashed. I’m sorry, but driving alone into a hillside is not a good sign.

What can Gibson do? He needs a story like this like a hole in the head. His career as a movie star seems over, his Jodie Foster film The Beaver is in limbo, and bad news seems to cling to him like a toxic spill. He needs to redeem himself, somehow, with good deeds or good films. From behind the director’s chair.
