Limitless

LimitlessWhat’s not to like about “Limitless”? It’s got a compelling plot – a pill that makes you all you can be – an appealing lead in Bradley Cooper, it’s imaginatively and in some bits hypnotically photographed, and Robert De Niro even shows up to get a little work done.

It’s a winner, worth the ticket price. I give it four and a half smart pills out of five.

Fun thing to look for: The movie’s got loads of visual panache, but watch for the color saturation to change whenever someone takes a pill to increase their mental power.

Side note: The idea that we only use 10% of our brains is a myth, most of us actually use 100% of our brains at different times. But don’t let that detract from a cool flick.
