There are lots of different types of thrillers out there. Disaster thrillers, action thrillers, sci-fi, horror, apocalypse, criminal. Every single type you can think of, it exists. But there’s something to be said for a movie which is a psychological-pharmaceutical thriller. But, thinking on it, is it not disturbing to think about how one little pill can alter our state of mind, or well being, and even our perception of reality? And how much stock we put in a doctor picking the right one for us, and how often? How many of these do we take without even realizing it?
This is the central issue in the film we’ll be looking at today, Side Effects.
