The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

I had the opportunity to see a pre-screening of this movie. It was good overall, and it had a lot to say about life and death. I was impressed how it especially avoided youth culture in general, when so many movies nowadays cater to the young.

Unfortunately, it does have plenty of sexual scenes. It seems that no matter the subject, Hollywood is simply incapable of producing a block-buster movie without nudity and sex. True, sex is part of a life's story, but it does not have to be explicit in a movie.

If you liked Forrest Gump, you will like this movie. It's Forrest Gump with a different twist, but it's just as insightful about life.
