The curious case of putting the audience to sleep

In case you missed this at the Official Anti-Benjamin Button Club or Defamer, more evidence that you are not crazy and the Academy is. Not hard evidence, but fun to watch anyway.

I just saw Benjamin Button today and I'd give it a mild thumbs up. I understand why this movie moves people so deeply, I really do.

It's way, way overlong and drags terribly. On the other hand, moments of amazing beauty.

At least us fans of the movie have A.O. Scott on our side. The video you posted of him talking about earlier encapsulates perfectly why I loved it. Again - Best of the year? Certainly not. A good film? Definitely.
