    THe man is a genius, the man is a boor. Then again perhaps the greatest chess master in known history was crazier than a tree full of rabid coons.

    seems a common problem

    I just think he's a deeply disturbed/mentally ill individual. Half schizophrenic. Probably aggravated/given unfortunate 'direction' in his views by his bigoted/Paleo father. He should be on antipsychotic drugs, not alcohol.

    Re: What do you think of the Mel Gibson rants?

    If Mel had been on anti-psychotics, would he have produced such artistic works?

    What about Edison or Einstein? Doesn't imbalance go hand and hand with great creative potential?

    No - he wouldn't have. Some people need their insanity to be creative.

    Gregg Allman, Bob Weir, among others were constantly stoned during their greatest productivity.

    Probably not.
    Neither would Van Gogh have.
    Not that Gibson's acting is on a par with the latter's painting.

    I think they may trend together but certainly not be cause-and-effect.
    There are many Better actors who aren't raging lunatics. At least as actors go.

    I don't think his brilliance is in his acting.

    Re: What do you think of the Mel Gibson rants?

    Well - as far as we know some other 'better' actors aren't raging lunatics.

    the ones that come out of the woodwork do so suddenly - rather than slowly . . . up until a few weeks ago most people had no clue he was like that.

    I know the only times in my life when I have been significantly creative were when I was deeply clinically depressed. Being analytical and left-brained seems to inhibit creative expression, and my tendency to see things in a rational and objective manner definitely does this.

    Henry rollins said it best when he said that "when you're depressed you just feel so free . . . so unconcerned. It's great."
