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.

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 exposť 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.

Movies With Butter

Courtroom drama, forensic thriller, romantic murder mystery...It's as if the prescription for genre side effects is more genres.

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.

Quickflix

The feature evolves from an icy, haunting tale of depression and abandonment into a squalid, sordid, serpentine Alfred Hitchcock pastiche. That it can glide from these two poles with us barely realising is a testament to Soderbergh's talent.

A story that plays subtle tricks with our moral allegiances.

An effortlessly slick medical thriller that makes no grand statements or summations beyond being effortlessly artful and entertaining.

Irish Times

If this puzzling, often very enjoyable medical thriller were directed by almost any film-maker other than Steven Soderbergh, you would be tempted to diagnose it with genre identity disorder.

It's certainly entertaining if you are willing to suspend your disbelief a little.

Electric Sheep

Another genre exercise for Soderbergh that he has managed to pull off with the help of his Hollywood friends to entertaining, if ultimately rather underwhelming, effect.

Radio Times

An intelligently crafted story, which is briskly paced and highly suspenseful - until a crude and puerile payoff in the third act.

This is London

This movie is pure hokum, just as Hitchcock's great originals are, but you only realise this after - just like all the people in the film - you have been thoroughly hooked and duped yourself.

Thrillers don't get much more enjoyable than this one, which shifts cleverly from an issue-based drama to an intriguing mystery and finally into riotously camp mayhem.

March 8, 2013

As Burns' screenplay takes yet another dark alternate route, our heavily-medicated contemporary society is fearlessly placed under the microscope.

Christopher Tookey
Daily Mail [UK]

None of the leading characters is heart-warmingly sympathetic, and this enables Soderbergh to put them through hell without making us feel he's being unnecessarily sadistic.
