Two stories for the price of one: Lenny works in a video shop and tries to get aquainted with the waitress Lea. Leo beats his pregnant wife, Louise, which is a VERY bad idea, as her brother, Louis, is a violent racist.

In this third installment of the Pusher trilogy we follow Milo, the charismatic Serbian (bad) cook slash Copenhagen druglord preparing the food for his daughter's birthday, attending rehab meetings from his drug addiction and -conform Pusher tradition- getting involved in a drug deal that does not quite work out as planned...Written by
First off, I have really no idea why the film has received so many 1 star ratings here-- Buric's lead role alone is worth at least five times that.
Now with that out of the way... The film is pretty much excellent. I can't see anyone who's liked the first two being disappointed with this one. The dialogue, the characters, the situations-- Winding Refn is becoming, or should I say has become, a true master filmmaker. I don't have much to say about the story, except that it has more in common with the first Pusher than the second one as it all happens in less than 24 hours. Furthermore, Milo's situation is somewhat like Frank's in the first one-- which is obviously quite ironic.
A few minor, almost intangible details prevent Pusher 3 from reaching perfect status, but it really is a tour de force of film-making. A couple of scenes are really extreme, but hopefully they won't keep anyone from seeing this first-rate film.
