#1 – The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

I went to see this film on New Year’s Day with my friend William. We’re both pretty big David Fincher fans although we have our disagreements about Zodiac. We were not split on Benjamin Button however; as we both thought it was brilliant. I can’t remember the last movie that almost forced me to tears, but Benjamin Button did that to me in several parts. It’s a movie where you really care about these characters and their outcome. It reminded me of Forest Gump or The Shawshank Redemption in how invested you were with the characters in a somewhat extraordinary, but very down to Earth situation. Besides aging backwards, Benjamin has the same hopes, dreams, fears and desires as everyone else and his experiences shape a beautifully crafted masterpiece. It may be a long movie, but you’ll never be bored. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is a real winner.
