Pusher 3 
Nicolas W. Refn had to take the film to jail so recently imprisoned Ilyas Agac (Lille Mohammed) could see the final product.
Film #149 of 2013
Director: Nicolas Winding Refn Cast: Zlatko Buric [Milo], Marinela Dekic [Milena] & Slavko Labovic [Radovan]
Plot: In this third installment of the ‘Pusher’ trilogy, we follow Milo (‘Zlatko Buric’), the drug lord from the two first films. He is aging, he is planning his daughter’s 25th birthday and his shipment of heroin turns out to be 10.000 pills of ecstasy. Source IMDB.com
Hipster Review: Not Refn’s best, but the final piece to his Pusher trilogy, set in the same dreary Copenhagen, was disturbingly fascinating and had that same intensified build up to tragedy…the scope of characters wasn’t as broad as its processors but its lead Zlatko Burik was so impeccably twisted that I wanted more.

- Draining, gutting and garbage disposal
- Serenity prayers at the NA-meeting (apparently the extras were real drug-addicts)
- The King Kong of Copenhagen, Kurt the Cunt and bad Shawarma
- Ecstasy, Speed, Heroine and Coke
- A drug lord trying to stay clean
Biggest Surprise: A lot more gruesome and ominous than the first two.
Biggest Let Down: A little less emotional than the first two.
Does the guy get the hot girl in the end? This tale of drugs and human trafficking comes without a love story.
Worth a Blu-ray purchase? Yup, still waiting for that box set.

What Tweeters are saying:
Watched "Pusher 3" on Netflix last night. Boy can Refn tell a good story. Now I need to go back and watch 1 and 2. "Drive" was no fluke.—
