Butcher Baker Bronson Maker

.
Today is the 45th birthday of director Nicolas Winding Refn, who's coming off probably my least favorite film of his (although as I admitted the other day I haven't seen the Pusher trilogy) but gearing up to release the film that in theory is most aimed towards my personal interests -- the fashion horror flick The Neon Demon. So even if I didn't like Only God Forgives much he's built up plenty of goodwill. Anyway I'm curious -- what's your favorite Refn movie?

I'm condensing the Pusher films into one and leaving off his 2nd & 3rd movies (called Fear X and Bleeder) because come on, nobody's gonna pick those... cue somebody's angry comment otherwise. Anyway I haven't seen them either. Should I?

Bleeder you should watch. Mikkelsen is a geeky video store cinophile in it, it's quite good. He walks around in my neighborhood in Copenhagen in it.
Fear X is more for you if you are a completist. Weird little, not great, not awful movie.
