After losing directing duties on Moneyball, Steven Soderbergh said “f*ck it,” and decided to throw in the directing towel. After a few more films.
Magic Mike was a hit as it made women everywhere go crazy and rub their titties together, which leaves Soderbergh with two films to go. The first of which is the Rooney Mara-starring Side Effects. In the film, Mara stars as a young woman whose life is perfect after Channing Tatum’s return from prison. Everything is all dissolves and sailboats. Then, the dissolves get ominous and she turns to medication and Jude Law besmirching to help cope with the pressure of living with Magic Mike himself. After that, everyone is yelling at everyone else! Yelling is how you know a drama is taut.
This Soderbergh is going to really make us sorry that he didn’t get to make the version of Moneyball where Demetri Martin yells at Catherine Zeta-Jones.
