Can you make sense of someone saying this about John Lennon beside Mark Chapman? Is it for real? Was it provocation? Reading the rest of the letter, it was rather rage, insane fucking enormous rage that consumes every day of that guy’s life!
The wrap has obtained the letter that Joe Esterhaus a writer best known for his work on ‘Basic Instinct’ and ‘Showgirl’s) has sent to Mel Gibson, after his failed attempt to work with him on a movie about the ‘Maccabees’, a project described as a sort of ‘Jewish Braveheart’.
In a nine-page letter, Eszterhas describes his interaction with the famous actor, and the whole thing is a long series of Gibson's enraged behavior, Gibson terrorizing his surrounding, constantly insulting people around him with the worst offensive vocabulary you can imagine. I mean, the guy needs serious psychiatric help, or may be it is beyond any possible help at this point, after reading this, I would lock him directly in a psychiatric ward for life.
And in the middle of this fury, in the middle of Gibson’s anti-Semite, obscene, verbal diarrhea, there is this sudden attack on John Lennon! Gibson is also a God-Jesus freak who has built his own church in his Malibu compound and who has distanced himself from mainstream religion, as he calls the late Pope John Paul the ‘devil’ or the Anti-Christ’!
So actually I would say that Gibson is totally sane on this, he may be one of the few who got ‘Imagine’ right! If you are as religious as he is, and as rich as he is, you have to hate that atheist socialist song which wants to ban religions and possessions.
But if he has the right to hate a song, he has no right to kill Lennon again! Fuck him! This is where insanity takes over, although this declaration is rather tamed in comparison to the psychopathic behavior revealed by this letter.
