    A Day Without Policemen

    ★★½

    Simon Yam is a pervert cop who also suffers from an AK47 trauma which prevents him from saving the day when a group of nasty rapists and child-killers terrorize an island he's stationed at...

    ★★★★½

    Things become very stressful for mob boss Milo (Zlatko Buric) as he has to deal with disrespectful business partners, deals going wrong, trying to stay clean of drugs while trying to host his daughter's birthday party...
    PUSHER 3 marks Nicolas Winding Refn's masterpiece. Told in the stretch of only one day/night it strongly recalls Scorsese's AFTER HOURS as Buric's character gets deeper and deeper into trouble having to juggle way too many balls at the same time. As Mikkelsen in…
