"Alibi" is a thriller with a bit of romance and touches of black humour along the way. Greg is discovered with the dead body of his wife's lover by Marcey, a public servant moonlighting as a waitress at a party thrown by Greg for he and his wife's wedding anniversary. Marcey sets about 'organising' the slightly neurotic Greg in his attempts to cover up the 'accident'. Written by
I thoroughly enjoyed this engaging, but rather hard-to-peg movie. It was part thriller, part drama, part humor, part slice-of-life tale of the trials of marriage and life... Altogether entertaining, however, and the performances were believable and interesting. The two leads are marvelous.
After watching it, I came here to read a bit about it and was so surprised to see that it was 2 1/2 hours long. I never looked up while I was watching it! If you had asked, I would have said 90 minutes. A definite treat if you are looking for something that follows its own path and keeps you thinking and smiling.
