Reitman Talks "Locker," "District 9"

This clip (shot by Roger Ebert) of Up in the Air director Jason Reitman talking about The Hurt Locker and District 9 is interesting if only because we so rarely get to hear other filmmakers and actors talking openly about their fellow competitors.

I'm still very much a fan of Reitman's Up in the Air, despite its current status as a backtalkers' bulls-eye. It's limping into tomorrow morning's Oscar nominations and doesn't stand a chance to win. Reitman has hurt his reputation amongst some with his seemingly cocky bravura in interviews and appearances, but I'm not so quick to judge.
