Thoughts on every movie I've ever seen.

Pusher (1996)

Directed by Nicolas Winding Refn

Starring Kim Bodnia, Zlatko Buric, Laura Drasbæk, Slavko Labovic


Haunting, intense, and brutal. Drugs are bad.

Appealing characters and actors, amazing how far Mads has come. Bodnia is great to watch, with an fixed expression throughout revealing only the most subtle changes from scene to scene. He has a Tom Sizemore/Kevin Spacey peacefulness quality to him.

Shooting style really lends itself to the story, though all of the hand-held closeups are a bit much.
