Review: 'Limitless' - Our 'Two Jews On Film' Have A Good Ride With This Sci-Fi Thriller!

'Limitless' directed by Neil Burger (Illusionist) and written by Leslie Dixon (Hairspray) is based on the novel 'Dark Fields' a riveting, high-concept thriller written by Alan Glynn.

Both the film and the book asks the question: What would you do if you could take a pill that makes you smarter - as in...beyond genius, smarter?

Well for Eddie Morra (Bradley Cooper) an unsuccessful writer with major writer's block, whose landlady is about to evict him, that question is a no-brainer.  Eddie takes the pill of course. Not just once but over and over and over again.  Not only does this top secret pill called NZT enhance his writing abilites, it makes him a perfect version of himself.  Top bad Eddie's enhanced abilities attract shadowy forces that threaten his new life.

Guess you can't have everything. At least Eddie is becoming an over night success.  Not only does he finish his book in several days, but he also takes Wall street by storm, parlaying a small stake into millions. Read More...
