'She was wide-eyed, now she's streetwise/ To the lies and the jive talk'

I haven't watched Sliding Doors in years. I've considered it one of my favorite movies since about 1999, but I think that once I hadn't watched it in a while, I got scared that when I finally did watch it again, I wouldn't like it. So I avoided watching it to avoid facing that fear.

I think I was also driven, to some extent, by my guilt at not updating JohnHannah.net in years. It's basically abandoned - an excellent source of information on John Hannah's career up to about... 2002 or so, but hopelessly lacking in recent years. I'm sorry, John (and JH.net). It's not that I love or respect your work any less... it's just that following your career has become less of a priority for me since I realized I'm going to need one of my own. If I watch John Hannah's movies, I remember how I used to feel about him and the site and I feel guilty for abandoning them.

While nursing my headache yesterday, I decided to bite the bullet and watch it again. Luckily, I still love it and I think I love it in ways I wouldn't have appreciated two years ago.

If you haven't seen the movie, there's no point in reading on - you won't understand and it will spoil things if you plan on watching it later.
