Side Effects Review: Take the Red Pill

by at . Comments

If Steven Soderbergh is truly retiring after the release of Side Effects, then he will go out on top. The film is a nail-biting thriller that is one of the smartest we've seen in some time. That is not only because of the psychiatrist as protagonist centrality to the story, it is cerebral cinema at its finest because all the puzzle pieces are constantly moving and never fit together until the final moments.
