Aside from Gere's performance, there's really not much to see here.

As we follow the increasingly frantic Gere down his nightmarish rabbit hole, the picture takes a satisfyingly cold, amoral stance - less critique and more cynical observation.

Like something straight out of 1992, Nicholas Jarecki's debut feature Arbitrage ... is a small scale, high-gloss thriller that feels like Wall Street's cousin.

A Wall Street-thriller blending elements of Chappaquiddick with a pinch of John Edwards and a whole lot of Bernie Madoff.

An absorbing character study that teases some vicarious revenge on a perfidious member of the billionaire's club.

It's the way Gere and director Nicholas Jarecki create sympathy for the devil that makes this so gripping.

Arbitrage is the kind of classily put-together film that actors, filmmakers and grown-up audiences frequently complain no longer gets made.

This is a gleaming movie about a man with his back to the wall, facing disgrace on several fronts and the possibility of exchanging his Armani suit for prison garb.

Richard Gere delivers such a charming, layered performance that he overcomes a contrived plot that piles too many financial and personal crises on the central character.

We are persuaded to root for Miller, even when he is betraying the people he loves best. You'll feel dirty, and well you should after a few hours in this company.

Writer-director Nicholas Jarecki, making his debut picture, has delivered a satisfying, grown-up drama, if not the definitive film about the financial crisis.

He's been An Officer And A Gentleman, An American Gigolo and Mr Pretty Woman, now Richard Gere is back in a smart and stylish thriller, Arbitrage.

Gere is matchless in this kind of role. The lacquered crinkle of the smile; the corrugated silk hair; the eyes deep-pouched and glinting like coins in a rich man's wallet.

What elegant pulp this is, and how inelegantly I gobbled it up.

Like Gere's Machiavellian tycoon, Arbitrage's flaws only start to appear under close scrutiny.
