Outstandingly well-done for a first-time director with no formal training on a shoestring budget, but something about it is unappealingly typical.

Refn's electrifying debut soon morphs into something far more opaque and unsettling than a mere genre retread.

First in a series of 3 films about Copenhagen drug dealers. Sardonic comedy in the "Goodfellas" vein.

The film practically vibrates with youthful aggression, sly humor and gathering tension, hurling itself forward like a junkie toward the next fix.

The biggest surprise is how you give a damn about what happens to Refn's bad guy--a testament to Bodnia's native likeability.

The director has cooked up a very disturbing film, that is derivative of Pulp Fiction.

Cinematographer Morten S°berg's visuals have a crisp documentary look that interlocks nicely with Frank's ongoing decline.
