Side Effects, a review

side-effects-movieUpon watching this film I had no prior information about its themes or plot, thinking it would simply be another Orange Wednesday. Little did I know how pleasantly surprised I would be.

A graceful interweaving of two strikingly different films, crafted to leave the viewer unaware as the true film comes into focus. Initially lulled into believing this film is a critical reflection of medicated America, the viewer is taken on a voyage, finding themselves in the chilling embrace of a crime thriller. The themes of love, revenge and liability are all handled supremely well, being integral parts of the narrative.

4/5 – Excellent!
Going to see this film is highly recommended. Prepare to thoroughly enjoy a gem that is becoming rare in the current array of mediocre cash-ins and sequels.
