Arbitrage is not about greed or frustration or police corruption. It's not about family bonds or loyalty or racial discrimination. But all those elements are incorporated into this multi-layered, suspense-laden film.

Does the privilege of powerful men always lead to lust and lies? No. But the phrase 'Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely,' is well depicted in 'Arbitrage.'

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.
