    Me quedé con ganas de ver otra de Fincher después de El club de la lucha, y visto lo visto tendría que haberme puesto Alien 3. El curioso caso de Benjamin Button es el producto de alguien que ha visto Forrest Gump e intenta repetir la jugada sin ningún acierto. Mientras que Gump va encontrando referencia tras referencia, Button solo se acuerda a veces del proceso histórico. Otras, quiere ser una introspección sobre el peculiar estado del protagonista. Y otras…

    A lot of people have problems with The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, but I loved how creative it was and the central romance was really intriguing. Fincher's most overlooked movie.

    Der Film ist viel zu lang und über weite Strecken fragte ich mich, warum Fincher ihn gemacht hat. Ich habe die Antwort gegoogelt: Statt wie sonst normale Typen in außergewöhnlichen Situationen zu zeigen, wollte er einen außergewöhnlichen Typen in normalen Situationen zeigen.

    Aber als junger Vater traf mich die letzte dreiviertel Stunde wie sieben Blitzschläge: Alt zu werden, ist vielleicht nicht das schlechteste Los, das wir ziehen konnten.

    Director: David Fincher (Fourth Film)

    A three-hour film that goes backwards, like two slow-motion pendulum's swinging towards each other and not an ounce of anything interesting because it's just two pendulum's swinging towards each other - it looks fine, and probably sounds nice if you care to listen but there's nothing other than this particular interest carrying the film beyond. Brad Pitt is born old and slowly ages in reverse.

    The best parts are obviously when he does…

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Watched Benjamin Button again.

    This time it seemed like the second half was WAY better than the first, for some reason.

    The first chunk of the movie before Jared Harris shows up I think hasn't aged well. It's not the CG, it's just that the rest of the movie is better.

    The Tilda Swinton bit is fantastic. SHE is fantastic. I'd much rather she and Cate Blanchett switched roles.

    Because every time it happens, I hate the Daisy character in…

    Life is a difficult, wonderful, tormenting, beautiful thing and so is David Fincher’s magnificent exploration of a life unlike any other; lived backwards but still full of the fundamental experiences that make a life whole. Whatever flaws the sum parts possess are easily forgotten when looking at the complete picture, which is achingly gorgeous and sweetly heartbreaking.

    A disastrous abomination. While the story could have gone in any number of directions to extract meaning from the premise, it instead just follows the protagonist in a long series of impossibly dull moments, from birth to death, every once in a while spitting out a generic Forrest Gump-esque fact about life that has nothing to do with Benjamin's condition. In that case, why must he age backwards at all? The only purpose seems to be for the point of…

    The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is an emotionally moving romantic fantasy drama from director David Fincher, with engaging storytelling, fantastic performances, and as usual for a Fincher film, excellent direction and beautiful cinematography.
