Tagline: What if a pill could make you rich and powerful?
Review: "Limitless" plastically tries to explain what may arise between the paralysis of a literary writer in crisis, and his excitement when he set out the stakes in a condition unlikely to be lawful. Eddie Morris (Bradley Cooper) is a professional writer in existential crisis, suffering the typical block nailed to the front page of a book left at the front cover. Unable to get out of its impasse, Eddie is also left by his girlfriend Lindy (Abbie Cornish), unwilling to share the tricks of his everyday man. Things seem to change appearance when Eddie meets Vernon (Johnny Whitworth), brother of ex-wife Melissa (Anna Friel), from which man is seen to offer a possibility in the form of a pill, a new drug called NZT, effects similar to ' amphetamine, but with much greater effect on the potential intellectual. Eddie swallows the pill and its ability to understand mental inpennano making a flight in what to do and how to do it. Finished the book in one breath, learn new languages ??and conquered Wall Street, Eddie is to gravitate to the attention of finance mogul Carl Van Loon (De Niro), who invites him to work for him. But the symptoms of addiction are bad NZT like Russian Gennady (Andrew Howard), shady characters very interested in new drugs. Burger sketched a paranoid thriller and science fiction on the perceptual cue of a human organ still in partial operation, but capable, if properly stimulated, instead of using every part of isolated areas. NZT open access to use total brain and the small universe of Eddie opens to a huge and immediate knowledge that the director does not follow, however, an equally steep growth of wisdom and imagination. The filmmaker makes up the surplus of over-ripe with narrative tricks photogenic tissue and sense of speed film that gives the system a dynamic rhythmic value, even if sometimes bizarre (the sequence of letters that drop from the ceiling refers to "Beautiful Mind" , in a different context, ironically), but needed to numb the sense of grotesque amplification of exhibition where the film suffers. The pace is tight and secure, some artifact, but it is desired, the direction is smart and the story seems deepened the phylacteries Bible as a reminder to the original sin that asks the man to rise to an identity prohibited. Sometimes the film summarizes the characteristics of a parody homiletics a little contrived, that it transcends the real intention of Burger to pack a comedy, a drama and a fantathriller the same one hundred minutes. Then the story loses its polish and energy is dissipated losing the flicker of originality in the logarithms of a fantasy too far even by Victor Fleming to explain whether or not Eddie Jekyll is guilty of murder. "Limitless" is a film of easy and convenient access, casual and indifferent to put on air metaphors moral or ethical, firmly planted on the virtuoso versatility of his talented director careful use of spectacular effects and Bradley Cooper on a can to support the uncertain step of De Niro.
