Limitless - 2011




The premise of Limitless is kind of simple and topical for those who keep an eye on smart drugs. What if you could tap into your full neurological capacity including the subconscious bandwidth that is the iceberg of consciousness and cognitive processing?

Mmm yes please.

This is a fun movie that I hugely enjoyed, though I kind of wondered if the choice of book name in the movie was a nod to certain group(s) who seem to have a edge when it comes to inside knowledge and making incredibly smart decisions that outwith us pedestrian mortals again and again. I have worked with people who take smart drugs and it's like competing with an Olympian in terms of Stamina, Mood and Process Capacity though I liked the individual and enjoyed working with them.

NB: The Dark Fields is a 2001 techno-thriller novel by Irish writer Alan Glynn. It was re-released in March 2011 under the title Limitless, in order to coincide with its 2011 film adaptation, the name of the book in the movie is Illuminating.
