Family-Faith Film review: Limitless
By Catholic Office of Film and Broadcasting
Limitless: This bluntly cynical thriller, based on Alan Glynn’s 2001 novel “The Dark Fields,” has an uninspired novelist (Bradley Cooper), aided by a secretive mind-enhancing pill, finding his focus, conquering the stock market and getting away, literally, with murder. Director Neil Burger and screenwriter Leslie Dixon trivialize their protagonist’s actions as he blazes a trail of homicidal violence that entails no discernable consequences. Skewed moral values, considerable gun and knife violence, a few implied premarital situations, fleeting crude language. O — morally offensive. (PG-13) 2011
