Very interesting little film. Great performances and twisting and turning plot. Lots to chew on here, from insider trading to big pharma and its grip on the medical profession. Really thoroughly enjoyed it, and am still thinking about it

Drugs and depression. Steven Soderbergh takes both head-on. Emily Taylor’s life is on the brink of total collapse after waiting for four years for her husband to get out of prison. Then she encounters Doctor Jonathan Banks. He tries his best to help her. There is copious drug use. Emily’s condition begins to improve, but then tragedy strikes, and it threatens to bring them down. The viewer envies the characters and their glamorous lives, even more so as they destroy themselves. The viewer needs to remind themself that these characters do not exist, and this is a fiction. In the end it is not drug use that is being criticized, but rather the avaricious soul-sucking void, the characters' needs to engulf their surroundings, and the sociopathic culture that made them this way Get more at getthebonesaw.blogspot.com

This movie is full of twists and turns. It plays out like a murder thriller, but it's so much more than that. There's a great deal of attention placed on the drug industry and the pills they push knowing that there are deadly side effects. However, there are several layers at play. Is someone trying to exploit those weaknesses in the drug industry to get away with murder? There are subtle hints throughout and plenty of shocking revelations. Jude Law is terrific, but Channing Tatum has a minor role and is only in the first quarter of the film.
