Review: Side Effects

PLOT: A man comes home after four years of prison to find his wife suffering from an extreme bout of depression. When she goes on a new prescription drug to alleviate the symptoms, she quickly goes from bad to worse. REVIEW: Don't take a whole lot of stock in that very brief plot synopsis you see above: SIDE EFFECTS is never what it really seems to be about. It's one of those...

Could Steven Soderbergh's Contagion become a TV series?

Steven Soderberg h 's 2011 thriller CONTAGION was one of his better movies. It successfully translated the procedural nightmare of dealing with an epidemic while not sacrificing quality drama. Instead of making an action movie out of it like OUTBREAK, CONTAGION looked at the path a disease can take from origins to eradication. Some may have found the movie to be a little dry, but I...

Steven Soderbergh clarifies what his stance on that whole retirement thing

Back in 2009 when asked by Esquire if he was going to make movies until his death, Steven Soderberg h gave this response: "I'm 45 now. When I turn 51, that'll be 25 years.

These two posters for Jack the Giant Slayer and Side Effects respectively feature a big stone face and stellar promotional design

Two posters, two markedly different movies, two strangely accurate ways to tie these to films together.  A side effect of giant slaying can be death (and other such painful results), whilst the struggle to surmount the side effects of prescription medication (and/or an addiction to said medication) can be as painful and terrifying as an attempt to slay a giant.  Funny how that works...

The first trailer for Steven Soderbergh's thriller SIDE EFFECTS has hit, featuring Rooney Mara as a woman who turns to prescription drugs to cope with her husband's (Channing Tatum) release from prison.  Naturally, things get crazy, spinning a web of murder, mystery, and deception.  The pic also stars Jude Law and Catherine Zeta-Jones.
