LOVEFiLM Review: Hesher (2010)

Loud music. Pornography. Burning shit to the ground. These are a few of Hesher’s favorite things. And they are what Hesher (Joseph Gordon Levitt) brings into the lives of TJ (Devin Brochu) and his father, Paul (Rainn Wilson) when he takes up residence in their garage uninvited. Grief-stricken by the loss of TJ’s mother in a car accident, Paul can’t muster the strength to evict the strange squatter, and soon the long-haired, tattooed Hesher becomes a fixture in the household. Like a force of nature, Hesher’s anarchy shakes the family out of their grief and helps them embrace life once more.

This is an odd duck of a film. I’m really not sure if I did or didn’t like it. A small independent film that I’ve been wanting to see since the trailer way back last year.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays Hesher, but what does he ACTUALLY do? I’m sure if I know the answer. This film provided more questions than answers. It’s definitely worth a watch though.
