I just saw "Side Effects" on Netflix. BLAGH!

This Soderburgh director--I think he stinks. This film was the dullest release of the year. He doesn't know how to tell a story. He should be executed. What do you say?

I thought I looked very young.

I don't get the big deal about Soderbergh either. He can make any subject as tedious as watching paint dry. Magic Mike was garbage, Side Effects middling at best, Bubble was some film student-level bullshit, The Girlfriend Experience was unwatchable. Behind The Candelabra was good, but only because of the cast. He still managed to suck the life out of the story.

Don't mean to spoil but wasn't there some controversy about the "crazy bisexual" trope being used again?

I enjoyed it a good bit. Jude Law was great. Rooney Mara, however....

I also like "Haywire," which I'm sure most DLers would detest.

I haven't seen Side Effects yet, but the Limey, Out of Sight and Haywire were all worth watching. Contagion was competent.

I loved Out of Sight, and R5 is correct about Contagion. But Side Effects was one the dullest films I've ever seen.

He's definitely had more misses than hits. Pity.

If you are speaking of him as if you've just heard of him, your opinion on film made in the last 30 years is utterly meaningless.

Steven Soderbergh is crazy.

Magic Mike was a better film.

It was dreadful.

I actually forgot I saw it until I saw the title of this thread.

I thought it started out interesting but the "surprising plot twists" were silly and have been used in other movies.
