I'm Insight: Fly Me

'Up In The Air' was my final movie of 2009 and it did not disappoint.

This film achieves that rarest of hat tricks: it is philosophical and insightful but also engaging and entertaining.

George Clooney stretches his boundaries and shows the psyche behind the sardonic smile as a man whose job embodies alienation: a professional downsizing hatchet-man perpetually on the road, literally 'up in the air.'

Vera Farmiga and Anna Kendrick (more about these ladies later on) deliver killer performances as two women who, in different ways, manage to penetrate Clooney's airtight existence. The result is a story that's both specific and universal, and very timely. Required viewing, in my opinion..

I'm deliberately not giving much away here, in the spirit of Trailer #1 (bottom). For that purpose, please watch Trailer #3 first. : - )

Mysterious, intriguing Trailer #1:
