Who Let the Dogs Out?

Jeremy Renner stars in this suspense/crime/biography that's based on the true story of journalist, Gary Webb, whose exposé on our government's role in the importing & distribution of drugs to finance the purchase of arms for the Contras in Nicaragua, helps ruin his life. Not a pleasant story whenever any one person tries to take on the government. Also available in DVD.
