"Side Effects" serves as an engaging and tight reminder of Steven Soderbergh's directorial skills even as he prepares for a break from filmmaking. While the film does not feel like a triumphant finale from the influential director, it is still a fine final note.
Last week, Harvard welcomed Boston jazz heroes Eric Jackson, Steve Schwartz, and Fred Taylor for a panel and a concert.
