Walking out of PVR Cinemas at Phoenix, I realize watching a good movie like wine tasting is a consummate experience acting on all five senses. The sound and visual effects of a movie leave a lasting impression, along with the aroma of popcorn.
As an adapted screenplay of a novel by Walter Kirn, Up in the Air embodies a complete trough in a person’s life. An organized dystopian life spent in air escaping from everything real, then discovering love and emotions and reaching a peak in happiness and then a sharp fall to an abyss deeper than before, and the previous bliss in oblivion marred by the hole left behind. The movie beautifully highlights the complexity of human relations and emotions and how human contact is being forsaken by our technology savvy generation.
The characters are well-defined and beautifully endorse the essence of what they are to portray. The visual appeal of the movie “Up in the Air” is piqued by the onscreen appearance of George Clooney, whose looks and poise get better with age. Your heart will threaten to jump out of your chest and your hands will ache to touch the sublime presence on the screen, every time Clooney gazes directly at you, his contours marked with the silver lining.
Overall a brilliant movie!! The lingering effect of the dialogues hover in my mind as I leave the auditorium.
