DVD: The Beaver, For retail & rental (Icon)

This bizarre folly has a suicidal executive (Mel Gibson) turning his life around by putting on a fluffy beaver puppet and acting as if the cockney-accented rodent has taken control of him.

It might just have worked as a Jim Carrey farce, but Jodie Foster directs it as a twee indie dramedy, then a gloomy drama about clinical depression, than a celebrity satire and finally a full-on gothic horror film. A train wreck.
