In a Bar Slinging Slang
The three hoodlums on the lam in Albino Alligator have the good luck to stumble into hipster heaven. They find themselves holed up in a bar called Dinos Last Chance, which has artfully preserved Prohibition-era decor and a huge likeness of Humphrey Bogart on the wall. With a great big nod to The Petrified Forest, this small, contrived film confines itself to the bar and walks a gangbusters cast through a series of stagey confrontations. Kevin Spacey has a sang-froid that would fit into this set-up perfectly, but he keeps it behind the camera instead. But Mr. Spaceys cool, measured acting style is much in evidence anyway, since he directs this debut feature with an emphasis on interesting mannerisms very much like his own. Like The Usual Suspects, in which Mr. Spacey figured so memorably, this film presents an array of chiseled, hard-boiled actors who are given extraordinary opportunities to preen. Their enjoyable posturing shows off great looks and impressive gamesmanship, but it doesnt offer much surprise. The viewer can wait confidently and know that Christian Fortes screenplay will deliver a monologue that begins, You ever heard of an albino alligator? Then comes an explanation of why such creatures may be martyred for strategic purposes.. Janet Maslin reviews film Albino Alligator; photo (L)
