The title “Bayou Caviar” refers to the preferred body disposal method of a Russian gangster (Richard Dreyfuss) in New Orleans, where it’s easy to keep alligators who love a fleshy snack. That disgusting conceit provides a fitting central image for the movie, a cold-blooded noir in which the overarching question is which chumps will become chum, literal or metaphorical.

Directed by Cuba Gooding Jr., in his first feature at the helm, “Bayou Caviar” is far from the most elegant example of its genre. Despite seamy, well-chosen locations, Mr. Gooding is way too heavy-handed in his scoring and visual choices.

But the movie deserves credit for its untempered nastiness. With one exception, Mr. Gooding refuses to redeem any of his characters, and certainly not the one he plays: Rodney, a former boxing star reduced to working as a bouncer, a job that eventually brings him into contact with Mr. Dreyfuss’s character.

Rodney’s task is to provide compromising evidence on the son-in-law of the gangster’s business associate, a blackmail scheme that, executed properly, could redound to the benefit of several people, including a celebrity-hungry teenager (Lia Marie Johnson) and a photographer (Famke Janssen).

Thanks to some clever plotting — Mr. Gooding is credited alongside Eitan Gorlin with the script — the lucrative possibilities grow. (A sex tape passed from person to person is instinctively exploited by almost everyone who holds it.) Like a boxer who doesn’t know when to quit, “Bayou Caviar” goes on a bit long, then rallies — in this case with an agreeably cynical closing image.
