his time in Hollywood Siberia.
His arrest for DUI (in which he got anti-semitic in front of the officer) was in 2006, his drunk phone call with Grigorieva was in 2010, and the Eszterhas letter about Gibson's racist views was in 2012.
Yet, he was back in business fronting Edge of Darkness in 2010, and having some kind of homage cult roles in Get the Gringo in 2012, Machete Kills and The Expendables 3 in 2013, and in 2016 starred in Blood Father and directed Hacksaw Ridge for a general acclaim that seemed to indicate he only made 4 years in "Hollywood Siberia".
Considering how the public can have much longer grudges for much smaller things, this always seemed like a very short time for me. As domino summed up, he seems to get an easier free pass than many many others.
But then, that never prevented me being curious about Hacksaw Ridge and going and watching it in theaters when it got released.
