I saw Up in the Air (“W chmurach”) at the BFI London Film Festival, but this is not a festival film. This is rather a typical blockbuster , quite clever (romantic?) comedy with a lot of great lines, extraordinary actors performance and a slight social reference. This is a rare kind of film, which receives both great reviews from professional critics and the audience applause all around the world. Quite an achievement for Jason Reitman (Juno, Thank You for Smoking), still “fresh” in Hollywood.
If you had to leave everything and pack all your stuff into one small backpack, what would you put inside? Ryan answers this question every day, not only during occasionally lectures “on independence” that he gives. And he does not have a problem with that. Like Robert De Niro in Heat, he does not have anything he could not get rid of within a few seconds. No possessions, no relationships. Nothing.
