Up in the Air
The story of a man ready to make a connection.
George Clooney plays the dry cynical character of Ryan Bingham, an executive who specializes in "downsizing". Ryan lives out of his suitcase, traveling the country for the sole purpose terminating unwanted employees day after day. Just as Ryan is about to reach his life-long goal of the ten million mile frequent flyer mark some major changes come his way. Changes that threaten to crack the cold heartless exterior that is Ryan Bingham.
Part entertaining crowd-pleaser, part depressing character study, Up in the Air is one of my favorite films from recent years. Ryan Bingham (George Clooney) is a guy who has made it the top of his field flying around the country firing people in place of cowardly employers. He isn't just a heartless ass hole, though. He wants to let people go with dignity in their darkest hour and does his best to understand each person he's about to fire and tailor his method to their individual needs.
His entire life revolves around disconnection and loneliness, but he doesn't realize that until a young up-and-comer Natalie (Anna Kendrick) becomes his protégé after proposing a way to modernize his business. He also…

-Fired on all cylinders
-I haven't got a Clooney
It's a good movie.
My love for this film was instantaneous and I for the life of me can't put my finger on why that is. All things considered it isn't an exceptional plot, but something about the themes in this film and Clooney's wonderful performance resonated with me.
This is the type of role I love seeing Clooney in. Charming as hell and quick witted. His gradual self awareness and subsequent change is both touching as it is bitter sweet. Clooney brings that across superbly. The fact that the chemistry between him and Vera Farmiga is almost palpable doesn't hurt either.
I really like Jason Reitman's cinematic prose. The way he tells this story here is very enjoyable. He gets very natural performances…
This was a first time viewing for me, and I will say that I regret missing this film in a bad way. I have come to expect greatness from every Clooney performance I embark on. I just had no interest in this film in the past, but when I finally came around to it, my mind was blown.
Clooney was pretty much perfect, his performance was definitely Oscar caliber. And although he didn't win the Best Actor statue, at least he was beat out by an amazing performance from Jeff Bridges. And the women in this were equally amazing in their respective roles. Farmiga and Kendrick were also very worthy of their nominations from the Academy. I hadn'e even heard…
This is a really amazing and heartbreaking movie. Together with a great script, the performances are really what make this film so enjoyable.
George Clooney is, in my opinion, one of the best actors we have currently out there. Here he pulls off a breathtaking performance of Ryan Bingham, a man that lives for his work, on the road (or the air) for most of his life.
He lives out of his suitcase and he has mastered the art of business traveling. He knows exactly how to pack to avoid checking bags in and wasting time, which lines to choose at security based on the profiles of the other people to speed the process, and he considers the "air" his…
Simply breathtaking. A modern classic in the making.
This evening I was kind of depressed and this was on TV so I thought I could watch it. I mean, some George Clooney can never hurt, right? Well, it turns out I am even more depressed after watching this. Yeah.
You might be living life in the fast lane, but be aware it's passing you by and, more often than not, slipping emptily through your fingers.
At some point or another, we all end up in the air.
It's a lot easier to deal with when you have people who care about you.
If you think about it, your favorite memories, the most important moments in your life... were you alone?
This is almost a great movie.
Just like in "Thank You For Smoking", Reitman introduces the audience to a guy who everyone hates because of his occupation. I find that these movies to be very similar. Prior to seeing them, people had told me how "hilarious" they are, but I only chuckled a few times during each. However, I do think they are quality movies. I do like this one a bit more than TYFS. They are both well-written, interesting, sharp satires, but they seem to fade away from my memory almost the second after they end. I don't find anything powerful enough or unique enough to be memorable.
George Clooney is really good, basically playing the Cloondog himself. Farmiga…
My favorite Jason Reitman film. Clooney and Kendrick are perfect together. Just a really great movie that makes you laugh out loud throughout, while pulling at your heart strings at the same time.
Can I Just Marry Anna Kendrick?
Segunda peli del maratón Reitman.
Esta película me encanta. Y más ahora que ya he salido de mi casa y estoy viviendo una gran aventura, es una película que cuando la empiezas a ver piensas, yo quiero seguri la filosofía de este tipo, pero lo bueno es que no solo te muestra el lado bueno, no tener ataduras, estar libre, poder hacer lo que quieras, tambien te muestra la otra cara, el aislamiento autosometido y que muchas veces cuesta más de lo que parece crear un puente que conecte esas dos vidas.
Sinceramente recomendable a más no poder. Y me encanta la fotografía, y cada vez me gusta mas George Clooney como actor.
