good night, benjamin

dancing's all about the lines

Finally found the time to see Benjamin Button. Lovely film. :) And so long it in the end sucked up all the energy I’ve been saving for writing a good movie review.

I kid; I’m just lazy. I actually found the film engaging enough to not mind the length, a la Jesse James – which incidentally also stars Brad Pitt.

But never mind Brad Pitt – why is Cate Blanchett so perfect why?

  1. There’s disarmingly beautiful; there’s perfection. And then there’s Cate Blanchett. And while–for me–she’s neither of the two, there is this intriguingly there-and-gone-and-there-again elfin charm about her that I just can’t put a finger on. When she reaches 60 or 70 years old, she’d probably become Pearl Jam’s Elderly Woman behind the Counter in a Small Town. The one who would make us “want to scream hello.”

  2. Stunningly beautiful film – it really touched me. For me, Cate Blanchet performs Cate Blanchet too often (Elizabeth; even in the Aviator), but her performance around her 70s in this film really convinced me – even if it would be really good that Cate (together with Kate Winslet) really mastered American accents for American films.
    Beautiful narrative. That’s it.
