Alpha Dog Reviews
Right, now take everything I just said in the above paragraph and apply that to a non-fiction story where all of the witnesses and people involved in set story are being portrayed by big name actors who, under the direction of Cassavetes, try to relate and tug at the heart-strings of the audience with music, sound effects, and the aforementioned hypermasculinity. The latter especially sucking the limelight away from the film's already weak plot which should always be any film's focus.
What a disgustingly manipulative piece of Hollywood dribble!
It makes me sad and sick because this true story can be better represented than what this garbage film had to offer. By the end, it left one nasty sour taste in my mouth.
You'll be laying on the ground, gibbering and shrieking in a mixed puddle of involuntarily excreted and projected bodily fluids, wondering if there is any meaning to your existence. It must be for something better than this. Please, please, for the sake of your children, do not watch this thing.
P.S. -- In case it wasn't clear, I'm not a fan of this film.
