Up in the Air

I've been meaning to post this trailer for a while. Up in the Air has the potential to demonstrate the omnitopian mindset -- the places, the connections, the placelessness and the missed connections -- far more effectively than Steven Spielberg's The Terminal, which suffered from an overdose of schmaltz (though serving usefully in chapter three of my book, City Ubiquitous).

I can't wait to see the flick for myself (wide release, Christmas day). It might provide one of those essential non-scholarly texts to help build a class about omnitopian design, theory, and performance. It might also offer a vivid demonstration of the price to be paid for omnitopian living.

Check out the trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_m-Da8Tz4_E
