It has been 10 years since Mel Gibson went on a drunken anti-Semitic rant that made him a Hollywood outcast.Gibson has kept a low profile with just a handful of small acting roles since his 2006 arrest in Malibu for drunk driving, after which he apologized for launching a diatribe against Jews and sought treatment for alcoholism.Now, his new war drama "Hacksaw Ridge," out in Beirut theaters Nov. 10, is winning the warmest reviews since his 1995 Oscar-winning movie "Braveheart". The film stars Andrew Garfield as Doss, who falls in love with a nurse and signs up for the army to be a medic despite being a conscientious objector due to his devout Christian beliefs. Asked if he faced any challenges in getting "Hacksaw Ridge" made, given his ups and downs in the film industry, Gibson said he came across none.
