Chances are, you already know if you're going to like The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button, the Brad Pitt weepie that opens tomorrow. And in a sense, the movie's predictability is what it's about. Spoilers!!!
Okay, not literally. Literally, Benjamin Button is about a guy who's born old and ages backwards, until he reaches childhood and then dies. But in a larger sense, David Fincher's movie is about deja vu. It feels very much like a dozen other movies you've seen before. And it seems to be saying that familiarity is underrated and nostalgia is renewal, by looking at the life of someone whose past is always in front of him.
