`The Beaver' centers on Walter Black, a depressed CEO of a toy company who has swallowed himself up in his shell of a soul and repelled those closest to him thanks to the darkest of depression. He sleeps, a lot, and barely notices his family to the point where his eldest son despises him, his youngest son feels abandoned and his wife finally kicks him out. With the light completely snuffed, Walter contemplates suicide, but not before he finds a beaver puppet in a dumpster and for some odd reason decides to take it to the hotel with him. The beaver then begins to speak through him to him and next thing you know Walter Black has disappeared and is replaced by a British beaver who allows Walter to escape the parts of himself he loathes and replace them with a confidence and sass unbeknownst to him. While this concept is initially bizarre to those who love him, it eventually allows everyone to escape, until it crosses a line and overstays its welcome and then, well, "stuff happens".
As a whole, `The Beaver' is surprisingly astute and really develops its central theme nicely. This is aided by a phenomenal performance by Mel Gibson.Read more ›

The movie starts off slow and ends slow. Nothing mildly entertaining about it. I thought with 3 super stars there was no way this movie would be bad. Read morePublished 13 days ago by The Lightning Bug
