A devout Traditionalist Catholic, Gibson became more outspoken with his conservative religious and political beliefs after the release of ''Passion''. He also came under fire with allegations of antisemitism and racism, fueled by his [[ConspiracyTheorist father's beliefs]] as well as comments he made during a DUI arrest. Gibson's controversial statements have made him the subject of frequent parody in the media and considered toxic in the Hollywood system for years.

His following film was ''Film/TheBeaver'', which tells the story of a man whose life was ruined by alcohol and who finds a very unusual way to get his life back in order--by using a sock puppet beaver as a separate personality. The film was notable for its RealitySubtext, but did little to shift Gibson's career direction. Gibson's next film, ''Film/GetTheGringo'' (titled ''How I Spent My Summer Vacation'' in some countries) started a small Renaissance. Though the film bypassed American cinemas and opened in the USA on [=DirectTV=], it was well received and helped raise Gibson's stock. He followed up with ''Film/MacheteKills'' and ''Film/TheExpendables3'' as the main villains. While no longer the draw he once was, he has managed to salvage his career to an extent. His fourth directorial effort, ''Film/HacksawRidge'', was released in 2016 to critical and commercial success.
