Interview With Spencer Susser On Hesher - WGTC

Hesher screened at Austin’s SXSW film fest a few months ago and writer/director Spencer Susser took the time to sit down with WGTC to discuss his film. We also spoke about his upcoming feature-length zombie apocalypse/romance film based on a short of his called I Love Sarah Jane. In Hesher, we follow an unstable drifter who violently inserts himself into a grieving boy’s life and home. Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Natalie Portman star in this indie drama which is heavy on character studies and light on plot.

Hesher (2011) - Popzara Review

A strange, unpleasant film that lacks the tools to successfully get its point across; it knows what it wants to say but not what it wants to be. Full review by Chris Pandolfi.


Metro Times: Hesher Review - Darkly Funny, Refreshingly Blunt, Middle Finger to Conventionality

Metro Times: For those not versed in dated mall lingo, a "hesher" was a particular breed of long-haired, pre-grunge headbanger, similar to a burnout; but usually distinguished by more grime and a nastier attitude. Joseph Gordon-Levitt has attitude in spades as the title character, a living personification of the scraggly social misfits who'd do donuts in suburban parking lots.

I really want to see it but its not playing in any of my local theaters...

JL4724d ago

Yea I'm in the same boat. The unfortunate part about living in a small city. Though, we do have a small film society here that brings some of these more obscure indie movies to this one theater here for like one weekend sometimes. Maybe I'll luck out and they do that with this one.

Soldierone4723d ago

The thing is Im not in a small city. Its run by Harkins which has gone on the become the largest chain in the west coast, except maybe AMC.

And yet I checked my movies app and so on and it isn't even listed anywhere.

JL4723d ago

Well I don't mean to say I live in Mayberry or anything lol Just a smaller city. I don't live in/near a city like LA or New York or Atlanta, Chicago, Miami, etc.

That being said, the movie has only opened in 42 theaters according to the data I'm seeing.

only 42.. man, that could be a record!


Detroit News: 'Hesher' Review - Gritty Drifter Shines as a Family's Angel in Hesher

Detroit News: Hesher is a beautiful mess.

With his long, scraggly hair, skin-and-bones bod and obscene, amateurish tattoos, he looks like some heavy metal washout.

But then one of the beauties of "Hesher" is you never really know who he is, or where he came from. He's a wastoid of mystery.
