Not caring: means he did what he wanted.
Watching his films, you can't help seeing. He had fun making them. Not caring, implies Mel did what amused him. No more, no less. My question is: was he fearless or messing around?
Not giving a damn
isn't exactly courage.
So was Mel fearless, indifferent, a genius, or all of the above?
