Pusher (Nicolas Winding Refn, 1996, Denmark) - Scandinavian Crime Movies

Mon, September 23, 2013 | Conference Room BUR 337

6:00 PM - 8:00 PM


Pusher is director Nicolas Winding Refn’s amazing and disturbing cult-movie success – a movie which you ought to see if you like his American-made movies such as Drive with Ryan Gosling.  The movie is about Frank who is a drug pusher on the roll until he makes a huge deal with dope that he hasn't paid for and he gets busted by the police. He manages to dump the dope in a nearby lake but he owes his supplier a lot of money (and he is not a nice guy to owe money to!). We follow Frank in his quest to raise money in the underworld of Copenhagen. Director: Nicolas Winding Refn. 110 min.
