In the immortal words of C&C Music Factory, "Hesher," a dark comedy/drama concoction from co-writer/director Spencer Susser, is very much a thing that makes you go "hmmmm." This might not be a bad thing (to tell you the truth we're still parsing through our thoughts on the film), but it certainly exists – it's the kind of movie you're thinking about days after you've seen it, whether you want to or not.

Not That There's Anything Wrong With ThatSebastian Gutierrez’s “Electra Luxx” isn’t so much a sequel to 2009’s “Women in Trouble” as it is a 95-minute love letter to girlfriend and star Carla Gugino. The original film only made $18,000, so it’s difficult to see “Elektra Luxx” as anything other than a labor of love (albeit one with some fun cameos and solid casting) that's pointless to the world outside the couple.

It's been a difficult road for Spencer Susser's "Hesher." The film, which stars Natalie Portman, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Rainn Wilson, seemed custom built to be an indie hit. It debuted at last year's Sundance Film Festival to mixed reviews, was bought up days later by Newmarket Films, and has languished for over a year without hitting theaters because of what appears to be internal politics. Newmarket chief Chris Ball left the company to form his own shingle, and there are now plans for the release to be a joint venture between Newmarket and Ball’s Wrekin Hill Entertainment. It should hit later this spring.

Terminal illness and comedy: not always the easiest combination to market. While a film like "Terms of Endearment" was a colossal success, that was a quarter of a century ago, and a more recent example like "Funny People" showed how even the seemingly unstoppable pairing of Judd Apatow and Adam Sandler could come unstuck at the box office when death is on the agenda.

A debut film, premiering at the Sundance Film Festival starring Natalie Portman, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, "The Office" comedian Rainn Wilson and John Carroll Lynch. If that's not the ideal foundations of an indie-hit in the making, we're not sure what is. Only it wasn't.
