Thiz movie is definitely my personal favorite from 2011. What if one pill could create the perfect version of you? Yes, Thiz one pill could raise the hidden potential of our brain. We become aware of every single detail, creativity and problem-solving will eventually burst out and certainly math becomes useful. It happens to Eddie Morra (Bradley Cooper), a desperate writer who facing a dead end in his career. The unexpected event introduces him to the magic pill which allows him to access 100% of his brain. The next thing he knows, he is able to complete his writing in just one night. In fact, his mind also becomes super smart and an effective analyzer. Now all things are easy, He can fix his fractured relationship with his girlfriend Lindy (Abbie Cornish), having a lifetime opportunity to work with successful tycoon investor like Carl Van Loon (Robert De Niro). It becomes worse when other people try to take advantage of him and his magic pill. One word for Bradley Cooper, he is awesome! All thiz time, I always thought that Bradley Cooper can be successful as is now just because he is good-looking, thiz time he has proved me wrong. Bradley Cooper definitely can describe highs and lows of his complex character. On the other hand, Robert De Niro delivers his typical persona as a charismatic and influential figure. And even though in brief performance, Abbie Cornish can bring out her sex appeal attractively. Neil Burger is the man behind thiz interesting thriller. He is formerly known for “The Illusionist” (2006) and “The Lucky Ones” (2008).Neil Burger has successfully provided a dynamic storytelling with compelling narrative. The instrumental song that sounds “Da da da da… Da da da” will be one of the memorable characteristics of thiz movie, in addition to “Infinite Zoom Sequence” that appears in the opening credits. Everything is grand, except one thing, the ending! The storyline is very nicely built since the very beginning but I can obviously see that they run out of ideas to conclude thiz story. The ending could have been better. Anyway, As far as I know, the only way to reach thiz kind of state is by mediation, not medication. If everyone is perfect then no one will learn anything.
