The Beaver Cockney self-help puppets save lives
Plot Businessman Walter Black (Gibson) is clinically depressed and ready to end it all. But when a ratty puppet ends up on his hand, it takes over his life and begins to turn his fortunes around.
Verdict Don’t expect the puppet to wisecrack — there’s more pain here than in The Passion Of The Christ. It never quite comes together in a satisfying way, but it’s still a brave, strange, brain-stirring piece of filmmaking. Reviewed by William Thomas
