We’re pretty anxious to take a look at Spencer Susser’s full length feature (he’s the man behind the excellent zombie short I Love Sara Jane) Hesher and really, who can blame us? Not only does Susser show great talent but any film which stars the awesome Joseph Gordon-Levitt is a must see in my books.

So what’s this sucker about? If you missed it last time:

TJ Forney is 13-years-old. Two months ago his mother was killed in an accident, so he and his broken dad, Paul, move in with TJ's grandmother to pick up the pieces. Hesher is a loner. He hates the world and everyone in it. He has long greasy hair, a baby moustache, a Metallica t-shirt and homemade tattoos. He is malnourished and smokes a lot of cigarettes. He likes to get into fights, start fires and blow things up. He lives in his van...until he meets TJ. HESHER is the story of a family struggling to deal with a loss and the anarchist head banger who helps them do it.

The film, which also stars Rainn Wilson and Natalie Portman, looks…I’m not sure how else to say this: badass. Is that really JGL? Talk about looking the part. I fully expect home drawn tattoo’s of stick men blowing their heads off to be part of the mainstream by this time next year.

A few more images, care of our good friends at /Film, after the break.
