Worth the Price of Admission - Sliding Doors

Another British flick, are you sensing a theme here, I ventured to the theater out of curiosity more than anything else. The premise just seemed so ridiculous. How good could a movie be chopped up in pieces shift back and forth between parallel stories involving the same characters and still make sense? The answer turned out to be fantastic. The filmmakers used simple techniques to weave the parallel stories together seamlessly shifting from one to the other back again. I didn't get lost once. And as an added bonus, John Hannah (you may remember him from Four Weddings and a Funeral). Sliding Doors is another example of a good story, well-told and well worth the price of admission.
