UP IN THE AIR : one of the Best Movies of 2009



An intelligent screenplay that crackles off the screen,
genuine sexual tension between the lead actors,
a plot that's almost too painfully relevant,

and

at the film's core,
a True Romance.






It's almost like an update of another favorite film of mine;

a bittersweet, grayer version of another character
who was forever running around airports and
forever attached to his cellphone:

Jerry Maguire!!!






And speaking of painfully relevant...



I really should spend more time on the ground,
in one place; with all my frequent flying,

I can already relate waaay too much with the ups and downs
and romantic travails of George Clooney's Ryan Bingham role!!!


Ouch!
