Side Effects

When it comes to contemporary film-related design, Neil Kellerhouse is head and shoulders above pretty much everyone else at the moment. I just love this poster for Side Effects. It immediately brings to mind Farrow's iconic pharmaceutical packaging for Spiritualized's Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space, and yet doesn't come across as a conceptual rip-off. Maybe it's the red – I'm a sucker for red.

As for the film itself, I really enjoyed it. I went into it knowing little more than what's on the poster (I've been trailer-abstinent for almost two years now), and found it thoroughly entertaining and thought-provoking in equal measures. Yet another great turn from Steven Soderbergh. Hopefully not – as he has suggested – his last. 

So yes, poster and film: highly recommended. Just try not to get too distracted by Rooney Mara's post-Dragon Tattoo awksfringe.
