Limitless encourages and glorifies drug use to accomplish your goals.

It also has the narrative that drugs can ruin your life.

You could certainly argue that it's pro-pharma

Yea throw in that disclaimer while showing the main character accomplishing everything a man can dream of... from depressed writers block artist to rich congressman with hot wife, using drugs to accomplish this goal. “Tapering off” because he was a special one and “knew how to control the drug”.

The Computer Wearing (Wore) Tennis Shoes. There's a few different versions of this movie, but it's an overall good one. So many years ago, we used to have good movies.
