PUSHER - An Electrifying, Riveting Wild Ride From Director Luis Preito

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

PUSHER, a shell game drug heist thriller, from Radius TWC presents a fast action, wild ride through the streets of London and the underworld of modern day European drug smuggling.

Nicolas Winding Refn, the director of the first PUSHER film serves as Executive Producer for this the third film in the trilogy. Produced by Rupert Preston, Christopher Simons and Felix Vossen, PUSHER is made in association with BFI Discovery, Embargo Films and Vertigo Films.

Directed by Luis Preito, PUSHER stars Richard Coyle, Supermodel turned actress Agyness Deyn, Bronson Webb and Zlatko Buric, most recently known for his appearance as Uri Karpov the Russian billionaire in Roland Emmerich’s 2012.

As PUSHER begins Frank, embodied by Richard Coyle, is a bad ass mid level heroin/coke dealer living large in London. His next big score, coming in from the Dam, is a week away and he loves the life.  The drug induced nights, the London underground, women and his solid, although slightly less intelligent, side man, Tony, portrayed by Bronson Webb. The two are a team; they rock the clubs. Supermodel turned actress Agyness Deyn portrays, Flo, Frank’s lover. Her final scene is shocking and she plays it well.

Remembering “Smugglers Blues” made famous by Glenn Fry, there’s lots of shady characters/lots of dirty deals, PUSHER chronicles one week in the life traveling the super highway of euro drug smuggling and the uncontrollable freefall into the mean lonely streets of desperation and despair.

Every deal is one deal away from nightmare as each person wants to find a way to take the cash and the “gear” (Euro slang for cocaine), Tony clears an unknown for sale and Frank sets up a rock deal.

Zlatko Buric tackles the role of Milo, a Middle Eastern drug lord who affectionately calls Frank “Frankie” and supplies his distribution network. Into the man for three grand already, Frank secures the rock from Milo and promises to come right back with the money.

When it comes time to pay for the play, Frank comes up short and while he tries to explain his dilemma the bottom line is he owes the drug lord big money and bad deal or bad day he’s got to pay. He’s in a vice being squeezed with the cops on one side and the “man” on the other. 

PUSHER is reminiscent of early Quentin Tarantino with in your face action and doesn’t shy away from the violence that goes with the life. Mixing the heightened suspense of the unknown PUSHER is electrifying, riveting and mesmerizing. It grabs your attention from the beginning.  PUSHER has a staccato beat, with rapid fire scenes, pulsating throughout the film.

Rated R PUSHER is intended for mature audiences and contains brutally graphic scenes, drug use, language, sexual activity and brief full frontal male nudity.

PUSHER opens everywhere October 26,2012.
