"Depression is the inability to construct a future."

Side Effects is not a motion picture that easily lends itself to a review, as it's hard to talk about this sophisticated thriller without revealing the numerous surprises which make it an enthralling watch.

A surprising (supposed) final effort by Soderbergh. Commenting on a genre while working within it, playing with gender stereotypes and employing social commentary have always been something that the occasionally very good director has pulled out of his tool belt; yet it has been quite a while since he has been so affecting. "Side Effects" is a strong final effort by the director but I think the re... read more

FIRST IMPRESSIONS

The plot revolves around Emily Taylor, as she's prescribed a new experimental medicine for her bouts of depression – and at first, it seems like it's going to be a straightforward tale of her trying to live with it. Then, after she kills her husband while sleepwalking as a side effect of the drug, it becomes a completely different movie: a legal drama first, as i... read more

A good movie

“Since I have always been interested in Steven Soderbergh's work, of course, I was really eager to check his (supposedly) last theatrical effort. Well, to be honest, I find it rather hard to judge the whole thing. I mean, there were many things that I did enjoy a lot, the directing was really solid and there was a stellar cast who gave some strong performances (Rooney Mara, Jude Law, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Channing Tatum). And yet, as often with this director, during the whole thing, I couldn't help thinking that once again, he was just playing around, experimenting with his new toy without caring much for the end-result. Indeed, basically, the first half was an interesting study about the effects of depression. It was definitely intriguing, even though I didn’t care much about t” read more

Surprisingly effective the 'side effects'

“A fine thriller, I thought I knew the twist before it reveal but I failed though it was a simple one. They utilised concept very well, about the side effects of the pills. In most of the scenes some logics were missing, still people have somehow knowledge about how it all works. But you know in movies, a doctor can do lawyer works, a lawyer can do engineering work and an engineer can do the doctor work. All are fair and square.

Wow, Rooney Mara looked so cute in the movie, is it only me or for everybody as well!. There's not much to praise Channing Tatum. The usual, fine performance by Jude Law but Catherine Zeta-Jones' character surprisingly took the story towards her side in the 2nd half of the movie. Yes the second half was much better than the first due to puzzling the charac” read more

"Side Effects" (2013)

“FIRST IMPRESSIONS

The plot revolves around Emily Taylor, as she's prescribed a new experimental medicine for her bouts of depression – and at first, it seems like it's going to be a straightforward tale of her trying to live with it. Then, after she kills her husband while sleepwalking as a side effect of the drug, it becomes a completely different movie: a legal drama first, as it's debated who should be held responsible for her actions, and then a conspiracy thriller, as her psychiatrist, Dr Banks, tries to uncover the truth.

I have to admit, this is a tough one to review. It's definitely well written; I can't see any plot holes or loose ends in the mystery. The acting, for the most part, is solid, especially from Rooney Mara.

But I wasn't totally impresse” read more

“"Depression is the inability to construct a future."

Side Effects is not a motion picture that easily lends itself to a review, as it's hard to talk about this sophisticated thriller without revealing the numerous surprises which make it an enthralling watch. The screenplay by Scott Z. Burns (Contagion) is laden with plot twists, hence potential viewers are advised to watch the movie before reading too much about it. All you need to know is, Side Effects is a terrific film crafted by a superlative director starring a solid cast, and it delves into intriguing subject matter. In fact, if the movie was made four decades ago, it most certainly would have been directed by Alfred Hitchcock, as Burns' script incorporates a number of Hitch's staples. It ventures into conventional plottin” read more

“A surprising (supposed) final effort by Soderbergh. Commenting on a genre while working within it, playing with gender stereotypes and employing social commentary have always been something that the occasionally very good director has pulled out of his tool belt; yet it has been quite a while since he has been so affecting. "Side Effects" is a strong final effort by the director but I think the real hero of this film belongs to the screenwriter for the very smart script. Every actor does well here with the exception for Zeta-Jones who tramples over all the other understated performances with way too much effort. The film itself gets a little muddied up in the details to try to keep everything moving forward at the very slick pace, but it moves so quickly diverting your attention that you b” read more
