Side Effects

 (2013)

Side Effects Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Psychological thriller following the effects of one woman's mental breakdown on those closest to her. In the hopes of treating the depression she is suffering in anticipation of her husband Martin returning home from prison, Emily Taylor is prescribed the new and untested drug Ablixa by her psychiatrist Dr Banks. Soon afterwards, things start looking up for the Taylors but it isn't long before Emily begins experiencing some disturbing side effects which appear to blur the line between fantasy and reality.

For more about Side Effects and the Side Effects Blu-ray release, see Side Effects Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Writer: Scott Z. Burns

Side Effects Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Cold cast with stale yellows, sickly greens, humorless blues and sterilized whites, Side Effects and its faithful, film-like 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer present the already minimalistic image at its most distinctly Soderberghian, with the director/cinematographer's telltale style dominating every frame. Colors are accurate and effective, as is contrast, and black levels are deep and foreboding. Fleshtones are reasonably well-saturated too (pale or jaundiced as they occasionally appear), and delineation is quite good, revealing as much or as little shadow detail as Soderbergh desires. Detail is also impressive on the whole, even though some intermittent softness, noise and ringing hold things back from perfection. Still, closeups are particularly refined, edges are crisply defined, textures are often nicely resolved, and the film's faint, almost imperceptible grain field is intact. It's a strong presentation, without any significant macroblocking, banding or other anomalies.


Side Effects Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Universal's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track is a noteworthy representation of the film's restrained but convincing sound design, from the noise of a bustling hospital to the quiet expanse of Jonathan's apartment, the alienating acoustics of a sparsely populated courtroom, and the nervous energy hanging in the air at a mental institution. Dialogue is clean, clear and intelligible, despite being beholden to any given interior or exterior environment's natural acoustic properties, and voices are never left to fend for themselves, subdued as they may be on occasion. The rear speakers and LFE channel primarily fill support roles, enhancing the believability of each scene without intruding or becoming forceful when force isn't required. Ultimately it proves itself a terrificly subtle sonic experience that values realism and immersion above all else. It's probably best to rent Side Effects before making a purchase, but fans of Soderbergh's every last film will be safe with a blind buy.
