Now, I'm admittedly not the biggest Channing Tatum fan, but I'm wholeheartedly a huge admirer of Steven Soderbergh and know that whatever he directs will be worth my time. Side Effects, his new film, starring the aforementioned heartthrob of the moment Tatum, Rooney Mara, Jude Law and Catherine Zeta-Jones, feels as if its right up the alley of his wonderful film Contagion. A relevant thriller, that is both cinematic and meaningful. Thought-provoking Hollywood. Rare these days. Soderbergh knows what he is doing and does not waste time with utter bullshit. He is a skilled craftsman and has the perfected knack of telling a story without diminishing it with lackluster nonsense. His new film deals with the effects of the pharmaceutical industry and appears to be a timely, suspenseful ride. Soderbergh knows how to make a thriller. Period. Here is the trailer.
