Go, See, Talk! Review: Pusher, 2012, dir. Luis Prieto

I can’t honestly find a ton of fault with the Pusher remake headed by Luis Prieto. It’s a fine film that boasts strong construction and performances, as well as a lovely palette and high reserves of desperate energy. But at the same time it’s nearly a perfect replicate of Nicholas Winding Refn’s 1996 film of the same name, and so I’m not sure how highly Prieto’s work deserves to be rated. Good though the film may be there’s little reason to watch it over Refn’s original picture, apart from perhaps Richard Coyle’s central turn as put-upon hero Frank. Click it here for the whole story.
