The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

Almost a masterpiece.

David Fincher is, no doubt, one of the finest directors of the past 20 years. I'm glad he uses in this movie, his well developed aeasthetically sense. The story is actually not great. The plot is very basic, but solid. What makes this movie great is the visuals, the music and the acting of most of them. I love Cate Blanchet, so I dont think i cant be partial regarding her. Brad Pitt was ok, ive read that his performance was a bit like joe black's. Might be. Nothing wrong with, but I understand why he developed toward that direction. At some point, it seemed like more stilized Forrest Gump, so, if that movie wouldnt had existed, this would have been a full masterpiece. Still worth it.
