I've been in some Oscar debates recently regarding the merits of Brad Pitt's performance in Benjamin Button. I say he did some incredible work that not only showcased his talent but also showed how beneficial a symbiotic relationship with special effects can be. To others the technology discredits the performance he gave. I hope this interesting video shines some light on what it took for Brad to create the young/old Benjamin and maybe, just maybe you can give him some slack.
Though, I still want to see Mickey Rourke win.
