Alpha Dog features an array of actors ranging from baby faced pop singer Justin Timberlake to almost bald action stuntman Bruce Willis. Emile Hirsch, the heartthrob of many teenager American girls, stars as the lame ass drug dealer Johnny Truelove. Truelove and his friend Jake Mazursky (played by Ben Foster) have a falling out which leads to a kidnapping. Jake is a deranged Jewish drug addict who sports an Nazi SS tattoo on his neck which can be seen when he beats a party of people up (including a black woman). Johnny Truelove has no problem calling his friend Jake a “kike” more than once in Alpha Dog.
I find the title Alpha Dog to be comical as none of the “men” in the film are masculine. I have seen bull dyke lesbians that make better “alpha males” than the drug dealing clowns in the film. I found the strongest aspect of Alpha Dog to be the comedic elements which I still don’t know whether they were intentional or not. Unlike the disgusting rich wigger fest Havoc (2005), Alpha Dog has it’s merits in displaying the characters of film as laughably clownish bitches. Sadly, I can see the average teenage white American thinking that the characters featured in Alpha Dog are “bad ass.”
Alpha Dog is far from a serious film that offers two hours of unpretentious entertainment. Like Larry Clark’s Bully, the film presents a “based on a true story” look at the sad specimens MTV “culture” has produced in America. The acting performances are full of character (not the kind you want to emulate) and are consistent throughout. The real Johnny Truelove was the youngest criminal ever featured on America’s Most Wanted. I wonder if he is as big of a turd as the Alpha Dog character version of Johnny Truelove.
