The Talkies Podcast: Ep. 9 – Side Effects


The Talkies gather round to discuss the extensive career of director Steven Soderbergh. Starting of with his first feature Sex, Lies and Videotape, the group examines Peter Gallagher’s eyebrows and James Spader’s hair. Then Erin Brockovich brings up questions about what makes a biopic, as well as praise for Julia Roberts’ performance. Next one Talkie’s enjoyment of Magic Mike leaves another completely dazed and confused.

In the main review the three come together to heap praise on Side Effects and the performances of Rooney Mara and Jude Law. Does Soderbergh’s possible farewell feature do him justice? Take a listen to find out, and maybe even hear some unexpected talk about Chris Kattan’s forgotten masterpiece, Corky Romano.
