In a strange way, he’s getting to read his own cinematic obituary by leaving on his own terms, and I can’t fault him for wanting to reflect on his own career, whether it’s temporary or permanent leave of absense. I haven’t enjoyed all of his films – “Ocean’s Thirteen” immediately comes to mind – and some I simply haven’t seen. But the ones I have experienced, good or bad, have each left an imprint on me, which is something I can’t say of most filmmakers. And “Side Effects” is no exception. It has “minor classic” written all over it.
Rating: ★★★★ out of ★★★★★ (Very Good)
