The Curious Case of Benjamin Button


The best film I have seen this year. I had not seen this since 2008. Move aside Ghost Writer and Shutter Island. Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett score. Alexandre Desplat with his brilliant musical score has left me speechless. David Fincher has directed this film based on F. Scott Fitzgerald's story of a man born under unusual circumstances.
It is a brilliant movie. It is a beautiful and masterfully constructed film. It is about a man who is born in his eighties(a monster) and ages backwards. There are many heart tugging moments in the film particularly in the final hour in this 166 minute masterpiece.
