Milo the drug baron is not having a good day. On top of sick henchman and organising his daughter's birthday he's dealing with a rather crucial shipping mix-up.
It turns out to be candy; revenge isn’t sweet. Merging exploitation nous with savage character study, director Nicolas Winding Refn is like a subzero Abel Ferrera, equally bloody, equally squalid, even more cynical. Buric’s hypnotic turn is horribly compelling, while an abrasive soundtrack and handheld style rub in the grit. Raw, ruthless and gut-wrenching.
Gritty and raw with some decent performances, this is not for the faint-hearted.
