â€œAlpha Dogâ€ is a true crime ridden story inspired by a impish thug incredibly named Jesse James Hollywood (remember this is a true story), who once ruled over a modern Sodom and Gomorrah in where else but city of angels, Los Angeles.
According to the plot, sometime in 2000 Mr. Hollywood, then a 20-year-old fledgling substance abuse kingpin, allegedly ordered the killing of 15-year-old Nicholas Markowitz, since his half brother owed $1,200 for a dope debt.
Friends of this alpha dealer kidnapped the teenager while he was walking near his San Fernando Valley home. Initially constrained, the hostage was soon getting stoned, drinking and watching television with his captors, who even brought him along to a party.
At some point, however, Mr. Hollywood awoke to the severity of the crime (he called his lawyer) and decided to get rid of Nicholas, who was shot multiple times and left to rot in a national forest with sweeping ocean views.
The movie has been described as good, but extremely disturbing and stars Bruce Willis.
