Air 2023 Movie Review Poster Trailer Online
Really, really loved this movie. I know it’s become a bit of an overused adage nowadays but this feels like the kind of movie we just don’t get anymore.
I’ve missed Ben Affleck as a director so much. I’ve liked every movie he’s directed so far (even Live By Night) and this movie shows just how capable he is behind the camera. His directing is a big part of the reason why this film is as captivating as it is. He never just reverts to simple shot/reverse shot between actors during these long dialogue scenes but instead keeps the characters moving and energetic and it keeps the scenes visually interesting. Its also extremely well edited with the film being kept at a brisk pace with a runtime that feels just right for this story.
But the dialogue here is unbelievable. It’s consistently sharp and witty throughout and it keeps the conversations engaging without ever being showy or overwritten. As much as I love Aaron Sorkin dialogue his scenes can often come across as words written by a professional screenwriter rather than genuine interactions between characters but that’s not the case here at all. But Air does what Sorkin scripts like the Social Network and Moneyball do extremely successfully and take very non-cinematic subject matters and makes them riveting, captivating watches.
I was a bit mixed on Affleck’s choice to never directly show Michael Jordan on screen. I understand the creative choice but the attempts to hide Jordan on screen often came across as more distracting than I think it would’ve been had Jordan just been portrayed as an actual character by an actor giving a performance.
But overall this was a great watch. I’m so glad Amazon are giving this a full theatrical release because it deserves to be seen on the big screen and I sincerely hope this is a sign of things to come not just from Amazon but streamers as a whole.
