Side Effects

Sound & Vision Magazine
4 December 2013
  • Excerpt: This movie’s plot twists are best served cold and jolting, but every aspect of who and what’s mentioned above figures in.

  • Excerpt: The Film Need a little something to get you out of the dumps? This new thriller from director Steven Soderbergh probably isn't gonna be it. Oh, Side Effects is a good movie. It's just not the movie that you think it's going to be.

  • Conclusion: I expected more from 'Side Effects.' What begins as a riveting exploration of drug therapy, depression, and the ethics of psychological treatment devolves into a run-of-the-mill whodunit whose payoff isn't nearly as clever as the incisive and intelligent lead-up would suggest.

  • Excerpt: Of the many twists and turns in Steven Soderbergh ’s vastly entertaining thriller Side Effects , the most gratifying has less to do with the nimble plotting than the fact that it isn’t the type of movie it initially appears to be.

  • Summary: What begins as a barbed satire of our pill-popping, self-medicating society morphs into something intriguingly different in this elegantly coiled puzzler.
