Did You Know?
[on Mel Gibson
] Mel is the new Australian. He is going to be a very good star. He is quite different from the Australian everyone knows -- the kind Rod Taylor
His films very often deal with people, who find themselves in surroundings, where they do not fit in (e.g. a Philadelphia Cop among the Amish, in Witness
(1985), or a progressive teacher on a strictly conservative school, in Dead Poets Society
His characters often interact with technology, especially television, in ways that harm them or surprise the viewer, e.g. the church big screen TV in The Mosquito Coast
(1986); the living room TV and TV control center in The Truman Show
(1998); radio playing in the barn in Witness
(1985), and so on.
