Ben Mather’s review:
Joseph Gordon Levitt continues in his quest to become my favourite actor with another standout performance. Rainn Wilson pretty much lives his character, and Piper Laurie adds another top-notch performance to her already impressive body of work. All in all, it's a masterclass in performance, even Portman decides to bring her A-game after coasting through some recent stuff.
Whilst the film has a cracking streak of anarchism running through it that brings it to life, it occasionally feels like a series of vignettes rather than a flowing narrative, which stops it being top marks for me.
Extra half star for Hesher shredding "Welcome Home Sanitarium" in the garage though.
