Side Effects – Movie Review


Steven Soderbergh has claimed this is his last film. If so, is it a goodbye I enjoyed watching? Hit the jump to check out my full video review…

Official Synopsis: A young woman’s world unravels when a drug prescribed by her psychiatrist has unexpected side effects.

Review Summary: If this truly is Soderbergh’s last film, then that’s very disappointing. This is the talented director’s finest film in years. He conjures great performances from Rooney Mara and Jude Law, and shoots his film with vibrancy. It’s a chilling, disturbing portrait of the dangers of the pharmaceutical industry, as well as the evil of deceit.
