David Fincher decided to go all Forrest Gump on us with The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Here's a good review.
On a more positive note, Tilda Swinton is tremendously elegant and provides a real accomplished appearance. Cate Blanchett is a pleasure to watch as always as the main love interest, but nothing is as striking as the visual effects done on Brad Pitt's twenty-something face.
sidenote: Interestingly I later found that both movies were written by the same person.
