When Milo and Radovan are taking care of the first body, Radovan slits the man's throat as he hangs upside down from the ceiling. A bucket that has been placed beneath him fills with the man's blood, and Radovan instructs Milo to empty it and bring it back. When he picks up the bucket, the plastic underneath it is covered with blood. However, when he brings the empty bucket back and replaces it beneath the man, the plastic covering is clean. After Radovan eviscerates the man, and Milo once again removes the bucket, the plastic is again covered in blood. See more »
Little Mohammed has something that belongs to me.
I'll look into it. Anything else?
Nope. But you'll call me when you know something, right?

First off, I have really no idea why the film has received so many 1 star ratings here-- Buric's lead role alone is worth at least five times that.
Now with that out of the way... The film is pretty much excellent. I can't see anyone who's liked the first two being disappointed with this one. The dialogue, the characters, the situations-- Winding Refn is becoming, or should I say has become, a true master filmmaker. I don't have much to say about the story, except that it has more in common with the first Pusher than the second one as it all happens in less than 24 hours. Furthermore, Milo's situation is somewhat like Frank's in the first one-- which is obviously quite ironic.
A few minor, almost intangible details prevent Pusher 3 from reaching perfect status, but it really is a tour de force of film-making. A couple of scenes are really extreme, but hopefully they won't keep anyone from seeing this first-rate film.
