Pusher 2 
Many of the cast were not actors, but real criminals. Vasilije Bojicic who played Vanja was sentenced to eight years in prison for smuggling heroin across Denmark.
Film #148 of 2013
Director: Nicolas Winding Refn Cast: Mads Mikkelsen [Tonny], Zlatko Buric [Milo] & Leif Sylvester [Smeden]
Plot: Tony is released from prison – again. This time he has his mind set on changing his broken down life, but that is easier said than done. Source IMDB.com
Hipster Review: Dark, dirty and tragic – Nicolas Winding Refn maintains a pervading sensation of paranoia and unrest until the last blood-stained act…although the second installment of the Pusher series isn’t as action packed as the first, Mads Mikkelsen makes up for that with a particularly riveting performance of a deadbeat ‘bottom of the rung’ loser. Watched June 06, 2013.
“You don’t steal a fucking Ferrari, unless someone’s ordered it!” Smeden
- Car jacking, porn, The Duke, Scag and changing a babies diaper (with the help of instructions)
- There’s a character named Ø, that’s cool
- More glimpses of Refn’s brilliant style leading up to ‘Drive’, particularity the 80′s soundtrack
- The BMW break-in and get away
- Who doesn’t enjoy their cocaine and corn flakes in the morning?
Biggest Surprise: How magnetic Mads Mikkelsen can be when given the proper character.
Biggest Let Down: It can get a little ‘Coronation Street’ish’…the unrated version.
Does the guy get the hot girl in the end? Tonny can’t get anything right so don’t get your hopes up.
Worth a Blu-ray purchase? I’m still waiting patiently for the box set of the trilogy.
