The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.
After watching one of the most original movies of my time I found myself wondering who is this guy? Brad Pitt? It sure didn’t seem like him nor act like the rough and tough guy we have come to enjoy, but after 2 hours and 45 minutes of what was the most “curious” movie I have ever seen I believe that Mr. Pitt has evolved! This was a turning point in his acting career. One I am hopeful that he will continue to pursue.
The story takes place with a Father rushing home to find his child has been born with some weird unexplainable disease. The child has been born of Old Age. From there the story continues on with Mr. Pitt not getting Older but actually getting younger. I don’t want to ruin or explain what happens in the movie but to only inform of Mr.Pitts unbelievable performance. Throughout the entire movie Brad appears to have this calm persona that is unlike him in most acting roles. He seems to of caught a niche for fitting into this role like no other actor I could see playing. Along the calm side he also warms up to almost every person he sees in his strange life.
In the past Brad has taken on some decent roles as a fighter, lover, and lately a nerd (Burn After Reading) but this role seems to have caught me and I suspect most off guard. In fact I believe and hope that he will win an Oscar for his role has benjamin button. While this is only my opinion, I see great things in store for this great actor. He has once and for all proven to me as a consumer that Brad Pitt is a great Actor and needs to be rewarded for his talent. The item that set him apart for me was how well he carried himself throughout the entire movie. Not only his calmness but his eagerness to learn throughout the movie. It seemed as though nothing would stop him from learning how and what life is all about, but in the aspect of starting out watching all around you people pass on first while you become younger.
