    ¿Qué o quién es Hesher? ¿Es nombre o es apellido?

    Me sorprendió bastante la primera vez que, sencillamente no te esperas esto.

    El adolescente TJ está obsesionado con el viejo y arruinado coche de la familia, descubrimos que su madre falleció recientemente. Vive en casa de su abuela, donde también vive su padre. Todos están en una espiral de autodestrucción. Entonces aparece Hesher, a quien TJ sin pensar le arruinó su estancia en una casa en construcción al atraer la…

    Der kleine TJ hat seine Mutter durch einen Autounfall verloren wodurch nicht nur sein sondern auch das Leben seines familiäres Umfeldes aus den Fugen gerät. Bis auf einmal Hasher auftaucht und die ganze Situation verschlimmbessert.

    Um es kurz und bündig zu machen. Ich hatte nichts von dem Film erwartet und wurde nicht enttäuscht. Es ist echt nichts tolles aber man kann den Film gut gucken.

    Hmm I haven't watched a movie on Mubi in some time, I should try another random one ... hmm, a comedy about an anarchist and a grieving family? Sounds interesting ... let's check it out .... is that Natalie Portman???? ... Wait is this .... no it can't be ... he is Joseph Gorden Lewitt .... that Dad feels like I know him .... godamnit it's Rainn Wilson.

    This is literally how I reacted to this movie while watching it.…

    'Hesher' is a revelation of a dramody, the like's of which I had not watched since 'The Beaver'. The humour is seemingly slapstick, but put into context, incredibly dark and bleak.

    We focus upon a family recently bereaved, and suddenly invaded by a head-banging drifter known only as Hesher. He is the catalyst of emotion, the reason for this dysfunctional families upturn of philosophy. In all of his anarchistic actions, he is forcing the father and son to confront their…

    JGL's good performance aside, this story feels disjointed and not really sure what it wants to be. Interesting because it is different, but that ultimately also limits it quite a lot.

    “I have a nut!”

    Sigh. Maybe I’m harsh, maybe I’m just bitter, but I’m just so tired of this movie and movies like this. It’s only about 90 minutes long and it’s been a few days since I saw it – but I’m still tired of it. As strange as it may sound – Hesher’s story about an odd outsider showing up in someone’s house and against all odds slowly befriends them feels like such a clichéd story that has…

    Aggressive. Depraved. Irreverant. Terrifying in many ways, but somehow still relevant. Good moral. Great acting.

    We've been remiss in failing to write about HESHER, currently enjoying an extended second run at the Logan. It's a film that requires championing, as it sits largely unwanted in the same corner Rainer Werner Fassbinder's films occupied before he started making respectable-looking movies like THE MARRIAGE OF MARIA BRAUN. Too punk for the art-houses and maybe too artful for the punks, HESHER is as defiant as its own protagonist. The film indulges in a lot of childish anti-social behavior,…
