The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Life isn't measured in minutes, but in moments.
Tells the story of Benjamin Button, a man who starts aging backwards with bizarre consequences.
A David Fincher film that's quite unlike any other David Fincher film, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button marks the esteemed filmmaker's first foray into a genre that's very different compared to his usuals, is a fascinating portrait of life seen from a different perspective, and even though it may not be as amazing as Fincher's best works, it's certainly his most distinct film to date.
Inspired from F. Scott Fitzgerald's short story of the same name, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button tells the life story of its titular character, who was born with all the characteristics of an old man but starts getting younger in appearance as the years pass by. The film covers his adventures & experiences as…
It's like Forrest Gump except not good.
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is a beautiful picture book devoid of any conflict or character development.
Fitzgerald’s story is an odd beast. It is an exploration of mortality and the shortcomings of being human and how we deal with those. It uses an interesting narrative structure to tell its story, giving shape to a very interesting protagonist. These themes are often dealt with in literature and here, as is often the case, so much gets lost in the translation to film.
Fincher’s film certainly holds all his trademark qualities. It is impeccably shot, with great attention to detail and a confident approach to the material. The visual and make up effects are great and everything is doused in…
ok i didn't finish this its 3 hours long and the tiny old man frightened me
The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button is a remarkable film and an epic piece of storytelling. Unfortunately because David Fincher's films over the last twenty years have been so well received both critically and commercially, this film often gets overlooked. Up against the likes of Se7en, The Social Network, Fight Club, and Zodiac, it may well be lesser Fincher, but it's still a terrific achievement.
F Scott Fitzgerald wrote the short story which this film is based upon. It took many years of legal wrangling before David Fincher managed to gain the rights to this film and he didn't do things by half when it came to making it. A huge budget, a stellar cast, and some of the most…

The Unexplored Shadows Of Our Realities: Ranking David Fincher
Review In A Nutshell:
Darkness surrounds our realities, an element that we find in the souls of others and within ourselves, we see how this darkness shape our surroundings and eventually shape the lives of the generations that come after us. We live in a time where a sense of fear radiates in the inner depths of our hearts and minds; an obsessive thought that sometimes forces us to see the world around us as a dangerous jungle rather than a relaxing paradise. David Fincher, a master filmmaker in the genres of mystery and suspense, creating film after film that captures the…
my favourite part was when he was an old man baby that is some good content
For his seventh film, David Fincher took a break from the suspense genre to direct this 2008 adaptation of the story by F. Scott Fitzgerald. Brad Pitt stars as the title character, who is born as a man in his 80's and ages in reverse. The story is told in flashback, as diary entries read by a daughter to her dying mother as Hurricane Katrina rages outside. Benjamin was left by his father on the doorstep of a New Orleans nursing home and was raised by Queenie, a caregiver there. Throughout his life, he continually crosses paths with Daisy, the love of his life. They watch each other age - him getting younger, her getting older - until they eventually…
but also this movie is fucked
tag urself im the lesbian dancer who wanted to sleep with daisy
Better than it's reputation in some circles, but only just so. The main problem here is the utter lack of drama. The impact of the ending should hit me like a ton of bricks, but it left me shrugging my shoulders and wondering what the movie was trying to say.
And what is that anyway? That aging in reverse is... unfortunate? That it leaves essentially you disconnected from everyone else? I don't have a clue. And that's a major problem.
People seem to be very divided on David Fincher's THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON. I've read a lot of reviews and opinions in which folks talk about it's shallowness and how no one learns any lessons. To me the film is a massive painting, right? It's absolutely beautiful to look at. What do you do with paintings, or art in general for that matter? You look, and you discover your own interpretations. You dig deep into the brush strokes that the artist has laid down and you find the beauty within. There are so many small touches that I love here that say so much about life without really saying much at all: The hummingbird, the clock, the man struck by lightning. Life is beautiful, tragic and funny. I think this film captures that in a unique way.
The kind of romantic story I love/want but it is a sad story. I love this movie so much.
One of the most moving meditations on the meaning of death. Means a lot to me for personal reasons -- and for me, this is Fincher's masterpiece
Klasična melodrama,skrojena po američkom (ne)ukusu.Prepun klišea,potpuno predvidiv i nepotrebno rastegnut.Verovatno i najprecenjeniji film koji sam gledao.Da glumački par nisu Kejt Blanšet i Bred Pit,bio bi katastrofalan.Ovako je samo loš.
