And, of course, what follows is Michael Kitchen’s beautiful delivery of a speech that’s at once touching, romantic, and humorous.

Dominic Dromgoole wrote in The Sunday Times (Aug. 31, 2003):

Kitchen and Okonedo are two of our best actors. They managed to play a substantial story of growing love without any intense stares or moist lips or fidgety signals. There was a lone touching of the upper arm. What they played was a slow-growing spread of trust between two people, and what is love if not trust?

Me, too! Sophie Okonedo and Michael Kitchen are a dream team.

The letter Annie Lennox received reminds me of Michael Kitchen’s infamous coffee shop encounter that was so amusingly recounted by Honeysuckle Weeks for the Daily Mail:

Good to know that “An Hour of Running May Add 7 Hours to Your Life“.

From The Guardian‘s review of Alibi:

Abbott’s skill is best demonstrated by pithy dialogue in scenes of exceptional economy. In Alibi, for example, a favourite was the brilliant cut diamond of an exchange in the latter stages of the story, between Kitchen’s Greg and his brother-in-law:

Pretty impressive stunt work if that’s Michael Kitchen rolling down the hill.

High praise for Alibi and Michael Kitchen in Sally Kinnes’s review for The Sunday Times (Aug. 24, 2003):

Greg manages to keep it together. He’s actually quite good at thinking on his feet – even when they’re bare.

Part 2 of 2. Marcey wielding the toilet tank cover cracks me up. 🙂

Are you talking to me? 😀

Color dilemna…

I’ve seen plenty of untempting Cyber Monday offers today, but this one takes the cake. And for a DVD that’s not even HD quality:

The image quality for Alibi is disappointing: it looks more like a TV-movie from the 1980s, not 2003. While it remains watchable, the image suffers from a lot of noise and grain, and colors are off as well, looking muted and grayish. – DVD Talk

Michael Kitchen and Sophie Okonedo deserve better.

A raucous riot of a scene with Greg and Linda determined to have it out even with a door in the way. Michael Kitchen looks hilariously deranged with his face distorted by the window glass.

Showing who’s boss.

Greg’s hides his malice behind the guise of a man celebrating the closing of a profitable deal.

Michael Kitchen does wonders with the “particularly challenging” dialogue in Alibi.

For all of Foyle’s heralded qualities, it’s Greg Brentwood – sweet, vulnerable, naïve, and prone to panic attacks – whom I adore most.

Just from the beginning.

Ah, “decked”, not “dexed”. I was hoping someone would set me straight. Thanks, KT.

Remarkable how much MK curls his tongue for the word “least”.

KT said:

I thought everyone did that when they said words beginning with “l”, I certainly do. I wonder if it’s a UK/US thing or just the way different tongues are made?

Could very well be just me.

Bewilderment, then dawning realization, and finally, angry humiliation pass over Greg’s face when Marcey exposes the depth of Linda and Martin’s betrayal.
