Just get wet.

Hesher. Spencer Susser. This could be a far better movie than it turned out to be. The acting is very good and this is the essence of the movie. Every actor in the movie made sure it did what it needed to do and even Rainn Wilson managed to get outside his usual comfort zone. Gordon-Levitt outdoes himself and most likely took another step in a great career. What the movie lacks is cohesiveness and a clear story to go with that. It is clear what the director wants to say, but perhaps he lacks the depth of experience/writing/age (just guessing here…) to put this into a correct form. Time will tell when Spencer directs his next movie. (personal note: that Metallica song remains a potential movie essential). (2010)
