    Anders Thomas Jensen shows who is the shit in danish cinema. Mads Mikkelsen, Nikolaj Lie Kaas and the rest of the boys go apeshit in this black comedy / revenge film. Funnies film I've seen in ages!

    I really don't want to spoil the plot on this one. Just see it ASAP.
    This was really solid, I had a good time with it. The right mix of black comedy and action, the humor worked well and never felt out of place. It was stylish enough to look good but never distract from the story, it was paced well and the entire cast did a great job.

    I knew you'd like it. The nerd-squad was such a hilarious trio.

    Not so 'modern' but I rewatched the original PUSHER a few weeks ago. Still stands up. An excellent little film. Keen to revisit the sequels now.

    Don't forget Bleeder. The videostore scene is the highlight of danish cinema in my world.

    On topic: Finally caught up on Another Round. It was good, but perhaps not as fantastic as critics will have you believe. Still, I enjoyed it quite a bit. And it made me wanna go on a drinking binge for some reason....

    For some odd reason Refn's four Danish films still aren't on blu-ray in the English speaking world. I got a French blu of BLEEDER and three German blurays of PUSHER 1-3.

    Correction: the first PUSHER is on bluray in Australia!
