||Synopsis: A film noir centering around a hard-boiled, stylish kingpin drug dealer, called King David, who returns to his hometown seeking redemption--but ends up only finding violent death. King David's final moments are spent with Paul, an aspiring journalist who knew him for just a few minutes; yet King David would forever more have an impact on Paul's life. Half preacher, half Satan, and all street smarts, King David had recorded the story of his exploits on audiotape, leaving behind an often-poetic sermon on villainy and its consequences. The tapes reveal that the cycle of violence and retribution, which his actions have spawned, has come back to him, full circle, as he suspected they might all along. Written by Sujit R. Varma

Never Die Alone opens up with a scene that full blown gives away a pivotal
event in the film, where we see the main character, King David, lying in a
casket, eyes closed, hands on his chest. It's no big secret that he's dead,
to me, this movie isn't about the events, but simply about the story and the
characters, and that's really all that matters. What I like first about this
movie is that it has the power to make the audience not care if the ending
is revealed, or if any other event is told before it happens. I don't think
this movie is about the ending, but it's simply about King David and his
Again, the movie opens up with King David in a casket, obviously dead. He
gives a narration, and talks about reincarnation and how some say that when
you die in one life, you'll pay back for your mistakes in the next one.
Immediately, one can wonder why this man would mention this.
King David comes back to his hometown to make amends with a drug dealer that
he stole from. This drug dealer is Moon. David offers to give back the 15
thousand he stole in drugs, plus another fifteen thousand for interest. Moon
sends two of his boys, Blue and Mike, to make the pickup. During the scene
in which Moon tells the two to meet up with David, Mike's reaction sparks up
some question, because he gets noticeably angry. We the audience question
the history that David and Mike, and ask what the deal is between
The pickup goes wrong, and King David ends up getting stabbed in the
process, right across from a bar. In the bar across the street is aspiring
reporter, Paul, a man who hangs out in ghetto areas to gather up information
on his novel. David comes to the aid of David, and drives him to the
hospital. During this beginning scene, we actually start to feel sympathy
for King David, as he pleads to Paul to `Not let him die alone.' This line
is somewhat sad, but at this point we have no idea what kind of person David
David of course dies, and hands over practically everything he has to Paul,
probably because he was caring enough to bring him to the hospital and not
let him die in the gutters. Among the things Paul gets from David are
jewelry, money, and a nice car. Paul eventually finds a collection of audio
cassettes, each one an audio diary chronicling the last ten years of David's
monstrous life. Then the real story begins.
Through these audio tapes, we realize that David probably never wanted
redemption and had no apology for the monstrous acts he's done. We at first
feel sorry for his character, and not want him to die, but as the movie
chronicles the last ten years, all of that care and sympathy that we had the
character disappears as we see King David for who he really is: A monstrous
man who has no compassion for anyone. King David charms women, gets to know
them, then hooks them on cocaine, THEN switches them to heroin without them
knowing, so that they have an unwanted dependence on him. King David is an
unapologetic man, who seems to purely like the suffering of others. He
single-handedly destroys these women's lives without remorse. He is able to
look back on these events and tell them as if he were proud about them. This
is his character. Unlike most drug movies, the character isn't sugarcoated,
the character isn't sold as a cold blooded killer who still feels remorse
for some people. The King David character is the complete opposite. He is
written truthfully, without trying to hold back the grim events in his life.
DMX has made a few films in the past, the two most recent (I'm pretty sure)
are Exit Wounds, and Cradle 2 The Grave, both mindless action films for the
genre fans. Those two movies were there to simply make money, and to
entertain people with fights and explosions. I liked those two movies, but I
don't those movies were able to expand DMX's acting talents because of what
kinds of movies they are. Never Die Alone brings out the performance in DMX
that most people probably didn't even know existed. Unlike in Cradle 2 The
Grave and Exit Wounds, DMX is able to give his character depth, and is able
to define him in ways that most actors cant do. He is able define his
character in the most monstrous way possible, and even though this character
is monstrous and evil in the movie, DMX cloaks this evil vindictive side,
and is able to appear normal, and I think this is the dynamic force of the
character, he knows he's evil, he knows he's a horrible person, but he acts
as if it's all just an everyday activity to ruin people's lives, and DMX
pulls this characteristic off amazingly well. He wrecks people's lives, and
he does it with so much ease and so little care, and DMX really brings this
character trait to the surface.
David Arquette plays an aspiring reporter, who, like I mentioned earlier,
finds King David's audio diaries and discovers the truth about the man he
just met. Arquette's character isn't onscreen very much, and he only
interacts a few times with other people, with the exception of King David.
His character isn't really developed, but he's one of those film characters
where he can be developed and presented with only a few sentences. What we
can learn about this character is that he simply is willing to go where most
people wouldn't dare to go, and he never intends harm to anyone else. The
character is simply there to be the good hearted person who doesn't enforce
any kind of hate or violence. He's the modern character of the movie, the
everyday person. His character is drawn into the complex character of King
David. Before he listens to the cassettes, he obviously doesn't know who
King David is, but he probably thinks that David isn't that bad of a person,
just like the audience. But as he listens to the tapes and hears the
monstrous things he's done, we cant really tell what he thinks about the guy
afterwards. We don't know whether he still feels some kind of remorse for
him, or if he feels that he deserved to die. There might still be some
remorse left in Arquette's character, but the movie doesn't really emphasize
whether that care and remorse was diminished after he listened to the
Each time this character was onscreen, I sat there wanting the movie to go
back to King David's `adventure', mainly because Arquette's character wasn't
interesting, and the movie tended to slow down every time they showed him.
However, regardless of that problem, it doesn't hurt the movie that much,
but I think it could have been fixed in some way.
The nature of this movie is dark and grim, so of course, the movie's setting
has to be dark and grim, and it is. The lighting effects obviously reflect
the movie's nature, and maybe even it's main character. The locations are
perfectly fitting for the dark and depressing tone that the movie tries to
set, and the lighting most of the time is perfect, because it maintains a
depressing look that has lots of style. Whether or not the movie's look was
done just for the sake of looking good, of if it was done to reflect the
characters and situations, either way, it was very stylistic.
With DMX's name printed above the title, and with DMX on the front cover
with two handguns at hand, most people will think this movie is another
mindless action film in the tradition of Exit Wounds and Cradle 2 The Grave.
I thought that it was an action film at first, but I had no idea that it was
a serious movie dealing with serious characters and serious situations.
Never Die Alone is a smart, taught, dark, and stylistic low budget drama
that'll either disgust audiences or serve them a dark drama that takes you
into the monstrous world of a vicious drug pusher, either way, the audience
will despise it for the first reason, and maybe love it for the latter
reason. I liked it for the latter.
Score: 9 ½ out of 10.
Very underrated dark drama that deserves some more recognition. Easily one
of the best films of 2004.
