A walk down the seamy side of Wall Street is pulled out of the shredder by Gere's performance, but only barely.

He simply evades and bargains. It's tough to say what audiences are supposed to do with that.

This terrific, character-driven New York story about big money, bigger liars, high finance and low, low morals is the best of the recent rush of fine films inspired by the GFC.

It's a juicy narrative that will keep you interested but it does feel a little staged.

Jarecki's feature debut is handsome and assured, with flashes of insight and the pleasures of a decent procedural. Given the brains and talent invested in it, however, Arbitrage should've yielded greater dividends.

When it's over, you feel the same chill as its characters, pondering the cold, thin line that slices like a razor between striking it rich and losing it all.

Gere gets the role he has been suiting up for ever since he was first designer-dressed for a murder rap in American Gigolo.

A ripping tale of high finance and low ethics, Arbitrage keeps its stocks continually on the rise due to a genuinely brilliant lead performance from the much-maligned Gere.

Richard Gere is in top form in this smart, layered and thrilling financial drama.

All of the characters are pretty darn unlikable. But when they're played by such a capable cast in such a tightly constructed story, you may not mind so much.

His moral guidelines are just as complicated and self contradictory as our own
