Pusher Review

Image for Pusher

A London drug dealer's (Richard Coyle) life takes a turn for the worse when a narc kingpin (Zlatko Buric) comes looking for his money.


Nicolas Winding Refn's Danish drug thriller gets a British remake, exec produced by the Drive director himself. A sympathetic Richard Coyle takes the lead as Frank, a mid-level London dealer who ends up in debt to gangsters (led by Zlatko Buric)after a deal goes wrong. And yes, he has a couple of days to come up with the cash or he’s for it. Cue desperate, coke-fuelled dashes around the capital accompanied by a pulsating soundtrack from Orbital and shots of girlfriend Agyness Deyn writhing on poles.

Nail-biting and genuinely heartbreaking moments mean it’s emotionally involving, even if it isn’t the cheeriest drug dealer saga in town.
