Capital Celluloid 2016 - Day 250: Wed Sep 7

Pusher (Winding Refn, 1996): Prince Charles Cinema, 9pm

This 35mm screening is part of a Nicolas Winding Refn selectrospective at the Prince Charles Cinema. You can find the full details here.

Chicago Reader review:
Everybody in Copenhagen loves Frank, who sells heroin and gives away charm. Business hums along—with evenings free for hypermacho bonding that both evokes and transcends Tarantino in every line and gesture—until Frank trusts someone he shouldn't. This disturbing, insightful drama about the relationship between ethics and luck insists that we identify with Frank even when we'd prefer to distance ourselves. And it has lots of humor and even irony, though these aren't its main objectives. Jens Dahl wrote the screenplay with director Nicolas Winding Refn; with Kim Bodnia, Zlatko Buric, Laura Drasbaek, Slavko Labovic, and Mads Mikkelsen.
