“PUSHER III: I’M THE ANGEL OF DEATH risks repetition as it puts Milo through the paces run by Frank and Tonny. Yet by now the atmosphere is so thick, the talk so assured, the performances so disciplined and the fear so fearsome, that Mr. Refn’s final iteration of his pattern achieves the hard, bright light of an archetype from hell.

We catch up with Milo at a Narcotics Anonymous meeting on the morning of his daughter’s 25th birthday, for which he has promised to cook for 50 guests, a task seriously derailed by the unexpected appearance of 10,000 hits of Ecstasy. Gripped in a nightmare of multitasking and increasingly strung out on drugs, Milo maneuvers against a new generation of pushers — and the villains in his soul.

The trilogy comes to its terrible, inevitable end with a sequence that renders men into meat, a thing to be bought, butchered, consumed and expelled. A word to the squeamish: it does this most literally. The ‘Pusher’ films pull no punch. They’re a knockout.” -Nathan Lee, New York Times
