neil burger directs
and robert de niro
rating: 'damn bro'
you watch the trailer for 'limitless' and notice the bro from 'the hangover' is the main character
you feel intellectually attracted to the theme of mental performance enhancement and decide that though this movie seems 'bro-y' you'll watch it
you download the torrent and wait for a few hours
you watch the movie in one sitting and feel consistently alert and entertained throughout
you feel happy that the movie is completely void of kanye west's music (unlike the trailer)
you remember events in your life that seem vaguely reminiscent of the events in the movie and feel affirmed in your efforts to 'do better'
you like that the movie is 'mild' in all of its non-realistic aspects (i.e. 'science fiction' is one experimental drug, 'magical realism' occurs as slight, seamless changes in the main character's perception and never occurs outside of his perceived reality, 'temporal unidirectionality' is only broken once outside of the context of memory, 'class dichotomy' is between struggling writer and successful businessman, and not, like, a third world orphan and a god-like figure)
you watch the movie with your girlfriend, who also enjoys it, and think 'limitless' is a good 'date movie'
