Thoughts on every movie I've ever seen.

I’m the Angel of Death: Pusher III (2005)

Directed by Nicolas Winding Refn

Starring Zlatko Buric, Marinela Dekic, Slavko Labovic, Ramadan Huseini

Refn has created a series of sequential but interconnected stories, and they all work. The characters and stories are unique and interesting enough to hold interest, and the consistent pacing, visual style, and natural acting keep it all glued together. Seems he was going to make a fourth movie with Ilyas Agac but couldn’t because he went to prison. Shame. Would have been fun to see how long they could have run with this concept.

This one has some particularly brutal, hard-to-watch scenes. Buric’s performance and story are haunting. Some of the scratchy stings in the score played over some of the scenes are a little annoying.
