    Re: upclose

    Yes, it can mean close range or to look at something near, but it can also mean to investigate something.

    'up close and personal' means to look at something very carefully and with compassion.

    Many english dictionaries don't give that definition. I just heard in a movie.

    Re: upclose

    Susie's right, but I just want to emphasise that up close is always two words.

    Movies are not a good source for learning English.
