I was pleasantly surprised by "Irresistible", which turned out to be a deftly made thriller with just enough twists and turns to keep the viewer guessing. Some were a bit more predictable than others, and others really came from left field and will likely be the dividing point on this one, but it was a surprisingly enjoyable view. What seems to begin as a genre piece leaning heavily on the excellent 1940's films "Gaslight" really mentally becomes three different parallel story lines. The questions that stick in your mind throughout much of the film and offer those three simultaneous scenarios are due to a first rate performance by Susan Sarandon. A lesser actress would have been a complete embarrassment in this film, but her no holds barred presence builds up what could have been a little throwaway flick.
