Kevin Spacey's Albino Alligator is a stylised hostage drama that clearly has pretensions to a kind of existential greatness. However these don't quite come off and I had difficulty in following the plot towards the end, without feeling that it was really worth trying to unscramble. It might appeal to fans of films like Reservoir Dogs or Ths Usual Suspects, in that it is filmed in a similarly elegant but offhand style. Its message seems to be that crime doesn't pay, even as it wallows in anguish and blood, although the violence is largely kept off-camera. The film is very claustrophobic, being set in a basement bar at night, where the criminal trio have taken hostages and are surrounded by police. A superficial resemblance to Dog Day Afternoon points up the problems with Spacey's film, as it lacks the humour and energy of Sidney Lumet's drama. Trying to put a human face on Matt Dillon's character doesn't work all that well because he comes across as a hoodlum, albeit a sexy one (and none-too-bright, which seems to be built-in to the concept), which I don't think was the case with Al Pacino's character. It also shares with that film the presence of a madman sidekick who is dying to let fly with the bullets, but again without the saving comedy. The best thing about this film is Dillon's physical appeal, Faye Dunaway's star quality - she still has that indefinable something - and a young actor's attraction. The camera certainly presents these three with a luminous glow, worth seeing in itself, but otherwise it's a bit of a dead duck - and a rather confusing one.

By Mr. Joe HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWER on 7 Sept. 2003
Format: VHS Tape
The selection at the video rental shop seemed unusually dreary, so I focused on ALBINO ALLIGATOR for the simple reason that Faye Dunaway was in the cast, and I hadn't seen her in awhile. I admit to having a mild crush on her since the original THOMAS CROWN AFFAIR.
Matt Dillon, Gary Sinise and William Fichtner star as three small-time, New Orleans crooks who bungle a warehouse heist, and then take refuge in a basement bar after being involved in an auto accident during the getaway, at which time the Sinise character is injured going through the windshield. And, by the way, during the getaway they mash into the pavement a cop involved in an unrelated Federal stakeout. At any rate, once in the bar, which has no rear entrance, they're surrounded by the local SWAT team and assorted TV news vans. However, they do have five hostages: the bar's owner, the bartender (Dunaway), and three wee hour customers.
ALBINO ALLIGATOR is the directorial debut of Kevin Spacey, an actor of considerable talent. While I won't go so far as to say that this first effort was badly directed, the script wasn't worth his time and energy. Unless he's more selective, Kevin should stay with his bread-and-butter job. Curiously, the film just didn't have that "movie" feel. It reminded me more of a filmed stage production. Furthermore, the "albino alligator" reference, ostensibly a ruse by which alligators send out an albino to flush out foes, had absolutely no application in the storyline. At least, none that I discerned even after thinking about it for several minutes. I was even watching with my glasses on. To be evenhanded, the Fichtner character, a real psycho, was chillingly done. And Faye is still a Babe, even at this late date.

I've been reading some reviews of "Albino Alligator" and a few of them seems to "dislike" this film.
I loved it, it's low key charm and subtle performances really making for a pleasurable end result.
Give it a chance.

I watched this on channel 5 at late night, expecting it to be rubbish. Nevertheless I was bored so i watched it with my brother.
We were both instantly gripped, great acting, unexpecting twists and good script. The characters are very believable. i am not exagerating, I just don't know why no-1 has heard of it.

It looks like a theathre story adapted for the big screen. It is mosly psychological but Spacey is smart enough to keep the attention of the audience always above the line. The cast is appropriately selected and the soundtrack (courtesy of Michael Brook) is a real bonus too: I would suggest to buy the CD of the OST togheter with the DVD.
