Pusher Review

Fate did not want me to see Pusher. To wit, here's what my Netflix queue looks like:

Original Shipment (Reported damaged on 05/30/05.)Replacement Shipment (Reported damaged on 06/01/05.)Replacement Shipment (Reported damaged on 06/06/05.)Replacement Shipment (Reported damaged on 06/11/05.) Replacement Shipment (Reported damaged on 06/16/05.) Replacement Shipment (Reported damaged on 06/24/05.)Replacement Shipment (Reported damaged on 07/25/05.)Replacement Shipment (Reported damaged on 07/30/05.)Replacement Shipment

Nine copies of the DVD, eight of which arrived broken. While this is certainly more of an indictment of the cheap quality discs the makers of the Pusher DVD must have used to press their movie, it may as well apply to the film itself. Was it worth waiting two months for this story of a drug dealer in Copenhagen, who loses his stash and has to pay back his suppliers posthaste?

Sorry, I'll stick with a repeat viewing of Pulp Fiction or some other flick from the genre that isn't quite so rote.
