I recently saw his latest movie “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.” If you’ve seen the previews, you know the unbelievable, but fascinating premise of the story. A true Brad Pitt fan will find the almost 3 hour running time is not long enough to tell Benjamin’s life story as Pitt is very appealing as both the narrator and in the title role. The special effects skillfully done by the make-up artists were astonishing. The artists not only created an unrecognizable aged Pitt, but in the reverse aging scenes gave us a Pitt that looked almost as young as he did in “A River Runs through It”.
I’d highly recommend this movie only if you like Pitt and enjoy movies that stretch your imagination; otherwise, you might find this lengthy movie rather tedious. For a detailed review, go to http://movies.nytimes.com/2008/12/25/movies/25butt.html
