Jason Reitman continues with great films "Juno" "Thank You for Smoking" and now "Up in the Air".

A very adult film giving a glimpse into corporate America. Great direction as I said and clever witty dialog, fantastic believable acting by George Clooney and Vera Farmiga, Anna Kendrick. Sort of a predictable twist but that in no way diminished the impact of this film and it's message; Whatever that is.
This is not an adventure film, just storytelling; a very well done drama with some thought provoking humor.

I left the theater feeling wonderful that I had never believed the hype and decided on the counterculture hippy lifestyle rather the Beemer, Armani and Rolex route, only to be cut off at the knees.


1/2

Really enjoyed this film too.
It's a "Real" movie.


I'd give it and 8/10.... what's that in clowns?
How many clowns can a film receive from you?

Yeah, I thought someone with your savoie faire would appreciate that one.

Five dancing clowns is the max. in my rating system.

I'd give it 4 of those clowns, if not 4.5.

Not only is it extremely well directed, the acting, by everyone, is superb and the script is excellent. It's a rare film that has everything working in top form.

From the small cameos from well known actors to the real interviews with recently laid off people, everything worked.

A great film.
