‘Side Effects’

Why: For its first half hour, Steven Soderbergh’s latest comes on like some artisanal spin on a Lifetime Movie, in which a young woman (Rooney Mara) awaits the prison release of her insider-trading husband (Channing Tatum) by experimenting with a variety of antidepressants. But as Side Effects continues, another film reveals itself—the real film, the one I encourage you to see, in a big theater crowded with other people. It’s impossible to discuss further specifics without spoiling the movie, so let me just say that it all adds up to a twisty, chilling, sometimes goofy (in a good way) Hollywood thrill ride. Consider it pharmacological noir. (See Movie Times: thestranger.com/film)
