I don’t care about Mel Gibson

I didn’t care to break down the percentage, but lets say an amazingly *high* percentage of reviews of Apocalypto begin, and in some cases proceed to the middle in talking not about the film, but about Mel Gibson’s life *away* from the film, especially with respect to racist comments he’s made.

This is inappropriate for a movie review. Its not inappropriate for a review of Mel Gibson, so take your comments to Hollywood Insider or some such where they belong. Mel Gibson does not matter. The job of a review is to tell me whether his *film* matters.
