Pushing Up Danes
Pusher is the first film in Nicolas Winding Refn's Pusher Trilogy. I was recently turned on to this by David Chen of the slashfimcast who has been recently blabbering on and on about this Danish trilogy insisting that all listeners check it out. OK, Dave, you win. Pusher was pretty damn good and it's a conflicting watch since you're sympathizing with a drug dealer, Frank (well played by Kim Bodnia), as he falls in and out and back in trouble throughout. I look forward to the next in the series and whatever bloody resolution awaits Frank.
