    I think Gordon-Levitt is amazing. Stunning performance.
    And Natalie Portman just completes it.

    Dark, rough, but with a point.

    Despite some buzz pre-release and an impressive cast, Spencer Susser’s odd but curiously sweet film Hesher skips a theatrical outing in the UK and heads straight to DVD. It’s not a brilliant film, but it’s miles better than much of the drivel that frequently crowds the shelves of HMV and Tesco. Maybe it will pick up a cult following due to the legions of Joseph Gordon-Levitt fans out there. The movie focuses on a troubling period in the life of…

    This makes some kind of weird sense. In a world where MMA is consider a “sport” and foul-mouthed hip-hop is considered “music” and violent interactive games are “fun,” why shouldn’t uncontrolled anarchist rage be considered “humor,” right? Well, I guess there were a few giggles along the way, such as seeing Piper Laurie smoking a bong and Natalie Portman put up her dukes to take on a punk bully. At least I learned a new term watching this … “aggro comedy” … but the central theme was still how to deal with grief. Good production value for an Indie, just not my cuppa.

    people coming to terms with a personal lost is not by any means something new on film, and its treatment in indie films has become repetitive to the point of being mockable specially in coming of age stories. Some one is managing there pain in a weird and not very healthy way and an unlikely father figure or mentor helps them move on.

    Hesher fits this very well, and thats not good at all, mostly because most of the characters…

    Considering I love Natalie Portman and Joseph Gordon Levitt more that I love most people I actually know in real life, I expected so much more.

    JGL is great, playing mostly against type, and I loved the film's (almost) complete lack of sentimentality or typical melodrama, but it never really seems to go anywhere or do anything with its concept. It's got some great, brilliant moments of dark comedy, but in service of what? The film doesn't seem to know either.

    Still, you could do worse.

    I had owned this DVD for a few years that I bought used at my local video store. After taking me so long to watch the movie I think i know why i put it off for so long.

    I mean it wasn't bad. It just felt it was there to say and do weird outlandish stuff. Don't get me wrong all the actors were good in the roles. Joseph Gordon Levitt, Natalie Portman and the kid were good. I…

    Spencer Sussers "Hesher" funktioniert nicht in allen Belangen und die Unzugänglichkeit der Charaktere setzt sich in der filmischen Umsetzung fort, doch auch wenn die Mischung aus Vorstadt-Drama und respektloser Komödie als Konzept nicht immer aufgeht, offenbart der Film durchaus ein gesteigertes Maß an Qualitäten und punktet mit einer Vielzahl anrührender, tieftrauriger Szenen.

    Hesher is probably one of my favorite Indie films I've seen in a while. The cast they have in the film is very good and the way Joseph Gordon-Levitt character, Hesher comes into the characters life and with his destructive attitude and life, he still changes them in a good way. I enjoy this film and hope you guys will too.
