Mars Review: Side Effects is a twisty pharmaceutical thriller an effective drama.  At its best, it’s chilling, creepy, strange and intriguing; at its worst, it’s gorgeous to look at.  The pill of the movie is that it packs a serious one-two punch as a detective drama coupled with a cautionary tale about the dangers of trying to pharma-cate our troubles away.  A satisfying, entertaining and thought-provoking thriller.

Stars: 4 out of 5
