The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

We saw this film last night. It was good, but I had high hopes that weren’t realised.

The story was a bit dull and wistful. Brad Pitt was pretty boring.

Still, this is more a fairy tale than a cinematic event, and it reaches you on an emotional level. It was pleasant, and had lots of enjoyable little bits. I’m in awe of David Fincher’s smooth, cool use of special effects that integrate into the story, rather than take it over. Cate Blanchett is wonderful.
