While this is a terrible, hard to watch movie that plays out like a B-movie; it is a must watch due to the shocking ending. Wish this would have been casted better because the story is a disturbing one that keeps you watching. WORTH a watch. Will never re-watch.

Crime drama film written and directed by Nick Cassavetes, first screened at the Sundance Film Festival on January 27, 2006, with a wide release the following year on January 12, 2007. The film is based on the true story of the kidnapping and murder of 15-year-old Nicholas Markowitz and related events in 2000. It portrays the involvement of Jesse James Hollywood, a young middle-class drug dealer in California.Extremely rough and unpleasant movie.

"Alpha Dog" by Yojimbo

The true life story of a young drug dealer who kidnaps the younger brother of a fellow gangster in order to make him pay his debts. As grim as that sounds, most of the film's light tone and constant frat style partying makes it look more like Almost Famous with wannabe gangsters. It is a promising premise for a gangster movie, but the script full of bored middle class white kids with nothing to do but get wasted and play at being hip hop style street criminals shows little insight as to how they became who they were, and the dialogue basically just constantly rearranges the words "suck", "my", "dick", "bitch" and "faggot". The bland performances all around also completely fall to draw you in, apart from Sharon Stone's turn as a kind of manic witch of the west in a fat suit which is just b...

Alpha Dog

Emile Hirsch is pimp in this movie! As embarrassed I am to say that, I believed him to be the leader of the pack. Even though he was short, he overpowers everyone because his character has the money and his limits extended more than anyone (arguably). Critics loved Justin Timberlake in this movie and I must agree with them. He gave heart to this movie and in the end he ends up to be the one audiences got to know most. But I must say I also loved Anton Yelchin's performance. His character's innocence was demolished during the last thirty minutes of the film and the way he did it took my breath away because he was so convincing. Even though the dialogue is kind of "ghetto," I advise you to not let that hinder your decision to watch this amazing sleeper film. I can't recommend this film enou...
