Reel Deal IV: Up in the Air
“Ryan Bingham (George Clooney) is the Organization Man for the 2000’s. He never comes to the office. Technically, he doesn’t have an office, he has an address where his employer has an office. His life is devoted to visiting other people’s offices, and firing them. “Up in the Air” takes the trust people once had in their jobs and pulls out the rug. It is a film for this time.” – Roger Ebert – December 2, 2009.
