Being received well and having justified the means, two sequels followed: Ocean's Twelve (2004) and Ocean's Thirteen (2007). Meanwhile, he experimented with new techniques producing a great variety of flicks, from the shot-on-digital-video quickie Full Frontal (2002) to the eerie science fiction remake Solaris (2002) to the biography of revolutionary Che Guevara (2008). One of the recent projects that he has directed is the 2012 psychological thriller Side Effects, with Jude Law, Rooney Mara, Channing Tatum and Catherine Zeta-Jones.
