Pusher III: I'm the Angel of Death
I'm the Angel of Death.
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. When Milo tries to sell the pills anyway, all Hell breaks loose and his only chance is to ask for help from his ex-henchman and old friend Radovan
I enjoyed this a lot, probably because it's about Serbian drug lord, though I don't know anything about drug lords (except from other movies), I'm from Serbia so it's kinda familiar to me. I didn't even have to read subtitles for maybe 50% of the movie and the movie is from Denmark, how cool is that? :)
I just wanted some conclusion, and I'm left craving for fourth movie which is never gonna be released probably. And the acting is not very good, except from Zlatko Buric - he was great, most of them aren't real actors I think, which isn't that bad in this case because it adds to realism and rawness.
After having seen the first two of the Pusher trilogy this one remained in the 'to watch' pile for some time afterward. Its not that I didn't enjoy the others (Which I did. Vastly) Its just somehow this one never grabbed me and I couldn't imagine where the series could go next.
This is arguably the best of the lot. More claustrophobic, more engaging character, more impending doom and a bigger to-do list for Milo.
If you liked the other two make sure you don't let this one pass you by. Its a brilliantly taut watch filled with squeamish suspense. It does a great job of amping up the dread for whichever outcome is hurtling towards you.
Milo's arc too good. Zlatko Buric is amazing in the first Pusher but here I absolutely loved, reaching in depth with Milo whom was immediately my favorite character of this trilogy. Pusher 3 set entirely in it's darkest tone compared to the previous ones, now with more interesting and frightening characters. Of course the cinematography helped the movie to appear very realistic of this underground gritty drug world. I personally favor Pusher 3, it's more honest, more disturbing, and more experimental. Comparing Pusher 2 and 3, they're different films in terms of styling and shows a Refn developing as a director and writer.
Impresionante! Me tardé mucho en verlas. Muy probablemente la trilogía "Pusher" sea una de mis favoritas a partir de ahora.
La secuencia salvaje hacia el final es para voltear la mirada. No cualquiera la resiste.
Brillante performance de Zlatko Buric. Lo mejor de todo es poder sentir la debacle de su personaje con el paso del tiempo en relación a la primera parte (y a su breve aparición en la segunda). El contraste de sus actitudes según las presiones que sufre está narrado con maestría.

I've officially finished the Pusher trilogy in less than 24 hours, and it was without a doubt, one of the best cinematic experiences i've had in quite some time. These were three films that I have had on my watch list for far too long and I couldn't be happier with the out come of this saga.
Just when I thought it couldn't get darker with Pusher 1 and 2, 3 comes along and completely takes it to a different level. These are three films that are definitely not for the faint of heart, but in the end i'm left with such a rewarding and…
To think of the pusher trilogy as one story arc is a mistake going in. Three films, three stories and some crossover in between.
The 3rd focusses on my personal favourite character, Milo, the charming if oily Serbian drug lord. Milo's story is not one of attempted ascension but of holding your footing while the sharks circle below. Great to see a character like this fleshed out in his own film rather than the brief scenery chewing Zlatko Buric provided in the first two films. Buric shows us more of the delightfully affable kingpin while also revealing the humanity underneath.
Straining the sub-section of stories about the mundanities of run-down drug dealers to a place that it had never before gone and will probably not repeat with the same mixture of diffidence and shock, Pusher III: I'm the Angel of Death augments the trilogy's all-encompassing concept of gangland indignity, the common thirst for escape, and the painful indifference of life. Like its predecessors, it's more a day in the life of a drug lord reeling toward disintegration than an extreme adventure in villainy. There are plenty of bodies, but somehow, it's poignant not only in spite of but because of its indifference to being a finale.
A very satisfying conclusion to the Pusher series. Or perhaps unsatisfying, but in an incredibly well done way. This installment focuses on Milo (Zlatko Buric), the antagonist of the first film and friendly cameo of the second. As with the prior series entries, it's focuses on a single drug dealer in trouble with higher-ups. While Milo may have been a scary higher-up ten years ago, he's now perhaps too old for the modern drug scene. He's also preoccupied with setting up his daughter's 25th birthday party. This is the most focused film of the franchise, taking place over the course of a single day (with a handful of surprising callbacks to the previous films). By the third act, everything takes…
Good film. A focused character study like the 2nd part of the filmseries, but crafted more similarely to the 1st part of the series.
This film is a tad more disgusting and gruesome in the end. Again a new person from the series is the center of the story, where focus is on the Serbian drug lord Milo and his troubles and ways of dealing with them. His performance is also good in his role and the film is a descent watch.
Continuing the good series this one again looks at another character from the first film (Milo) and shows his issues and how he deals with them. Nice to see the quality being maintained and the new approach in each film. There is little moralising here, just showing things in a matter-of-fact way.
It's perhaps the weakest the in the trilogy but still remains a highly superior character study even if the somewhat gruesome finale does let the film down.
Now this is more like it! Milo was one of the most interesting characters in the original Pusher, and he proves to be much more deserving of his own sequel than Tonny was in Pusher 2. Like the second film, this essentially just expands the character traits we learned about in the first film out to feature-length, but Milo's character - a competent drug dealer who would rather be a chef, but is a dangerously bad cook - is much more interesting than Tonny's walking penis.
The general arc of the Pusher films (things start bad, get immeasurably worse) is also honed to perfection here, with Milo starting out trying to beat his addiction at a support group and, over…
