The Curious Case of Benjamin Button by David Fincher

As much as I appreciate Fincher’s work, this one was a disappointment.

This film is too long and at moments truly unbearable. Guess the amount of time the crew and casst spent at the make-up room somehow had to be translated to the length of the film. I cannot see any other explanation.

A spectacular project which is really not worth the whole effort. The plot is so expanded that at times it is really hard to say how much time a given scene took. Cate Blanchett on death-bed is purely abominable. The plot does not justify many elements in the film.

Cate Blanchett has beautiful red her throughout the majority of the film. Brad Pitt is mainly an old man with grey hair.

As much as a curious case this is, I wouldn’t say that the story was told interestingly enough. It’s a ‘to be missed’ Fincher.
