Side Effects Reviews

Film School Rejects

Side Effects is a more than worthy film for anyone to end their career (well, maybe) on.

Sacramento News & Review

The director is Steven Soderbergh at his coolly mercurial best and in that exciting middle ground between experiment and entertainment, where formal playfulness goes very well with great faces.

Independent

If audiences stop trying to unravel the very tangled plot and don't mind have the carpet pulled from under their feet again and again, they should find plenty here to relish.

Chris Knight
National Post

Side Effects looks like it's going to be an expose of America's prescription-drug addiction issues, before it swerves nicely into thriller territory, and a seemingly minor character becomes the protagonist.

Side Effects is, ultimately, another example of the director's commitment to fine craftsmanship above any identifiable fingerprint.

This is one of those films where every single line of dialogue has a meaning, then another meaning, and possibly a third as perspectives shift with each new revelation.

Even if you think Soderbergh has screwed up, you'll probably find the mistakes interesting.

A provocative thriller that offers intelligence and solid surprises until its lame third act.

We Got This Covered

Side Effects is a twisty pharmaceutical thriller that functions both as an effective drama and a social commentary on America's rising obsession with prescription drugs.

Seven Days

It suggests Jagged Edge retold in the measured voice of the New Yorker.

Cinema em Cena

Um experimento de gênero eficiente e que demonstra certa coragem ao puxar o tapete sob as expectativas do público quanto ao tipo de filme que está vendo.

The Patriot Ledger

It's the nuances that lift it into the upper echelon, especially the subtle way it poses questions about our growing dependence on psychopharmaceuticals and the motivations of the doctors who so freely prescribe them.

Brian Gibson
Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)

Even when it twists back to Hitchcockland, there's more than enough lingering spookiness about a culture's dependence on prescription drugs and psychiatry to wrench Side Effects away from being a mere trickster-tale.

Badass Digest

Soderbergh is that rare director who can turn a clunky screenplay into something almost entirely delicious, and with SIDE EFFECTS he does exactly that.

Movie Chambers

Soderbergh, with the help of some excellent writing by Scott Z. Burns and an outstanding cast, take you to Hitchcock territory.

Full Review Source: Movie Chambers | Original Score: A-

March 28, 2013

A masterful double-bluff. What starts as a taut, topical drama about medicated America becomes a classic, twisted neo-noir that sees Soderbergh pushing aside on-the-nose themes in favour of sheer entertainment.

Movie Talk

One moment, we're watching an enthralling exposé of the modern pharmaceutical industry; the next we're reeling from some well-timed mystery-thriller shocks. And Soderbergh, aided by a sharp script and superb cast, wrong-foots us all the way.

Ripper psychological mystery-thriller...prime, sharply directed guessing game stuff full of plot surprises and great left turns.

ABC Radio (Australia)

At its best, it's chilling, creepy, strange and intriguing; at its worst, it's gorgeous to look at.

American Profile

A real pill of a movie that packs a serious one-two punch as a detective drama coupled with a cautionary tale about the dangers of trying to pharma-cate our troubles away.
