"How much does your life weigh?"

While a great deal of "topical" motion pictures invariably arrive too late, 2009's Up in the Air is a flawlessly timed evocation of this modern age of corporate instability, a shaky global economy, and a general aura of uncertainty and discomfort. Of course, a film is not catapulted to greatness on account of its timeliness alone. Jason Reitman visib... read more

The consensus that UP IN THE AIR is, among other things, a particularly timely film becomes clear during its first few minutes, which depict reactions from several people who have just been fired from their jobs. It takes a while before we find out who it is that's doing the firing, but we soon discover that it's none other than George Clooney, who's sort of developed a reputation as the "cool, ni... read more

Description: Ryan Bingham's job is to fire people from theirs. The anguish, hostility, and despair of his "clients" has left him falsely compassionate, living out of a suitcase, and loving every second of it.

" Notes: First of all, I have noticed that pretty much everything directed by Jason Reitman afterwards was hardly successful and this flick was the last one he made which was really well received. To be honest, I thought it was not as good as 'Thank you for smoking' which should get much more credit but, in my opinion, it was still much better than 'Juno' which was, in my opinion, rather overrated. Anyway, at the time, Jason Reitman was definitely continuing his winning streak. Indeed, it was j"
