PUSHER 2: Having just been released from prison, Tonny discovers that he has a child and a debt to his father, the most vicious gangster in Copenhagen.
PUSHER 3: After many years of heroin abuse, Miko discovers that his position as gangster No.1 in Copenhagen is threatened by the younger, ambitious of Arabs.
GAMBLER: Emerging master  Nicolas Winding Refn found himself drowning in debt after the box-office failure of 2003’s FEAR X, so he decided to produce two sequels to his cult hit PUSHER. this documentary takes a painfully funny (and sometimes just painful) look at the treacherous balancing act between commerce and art.
