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.

Financial crime can be difficult to follow and dull to relate ... But Nicholas Jarecki keeps the paper stuff straightforward and the action interesting by bolting it on to a more conventional thriller plot.

Not a huge amount happens, though suspense does eventually build.

February 25, 2013
This may be the role that Gere has been suited for since he first threw on the Armani for American Gigolo.

February 18, 2013
Gere's charm offsets his character's amorality in what's both slick entertainment and cautionary fable.

February 17, 2013
Ethically driven storytelling at its best with an outstanding Richard Gere delivering one of his best performances.

February 13, 2013
It's the kind of role that fits Gere perfectly these days, his somewhat blank face gradually hardening to the audience as we become increasingly aware of the moral void under the surface.

January 8, 2013
With his burrowed eyes, perfect hair and flawless wardrobe, Gere brims with a regal air and unsettling chilliness in his best role in more than a decade.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
January 8, 2013
Gere doesn't give Robert a remarkable amount of depth, but he certainly plays his damaged, agonized soul for all it's worth, even as the movie views him from a coolly removed distance.

There are holes in the plot, to be sure, but somehow we don't mind, because for all the unbearable tension of Jarecki's script, the central attraction here is the man in the arena.

It's appropriate that Arbitrage gets its American release while our country is knee-deep in the fight over the fiscal cliff and the future of our financial institutions.

Arbitrage avoids lazy, anti-corporate talking points to tell the thrilling story of a man drowning in his own greed.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
December 23, 2012
Arbitrage is the story of one rich man's downward spiral where both sides lie to try to get what they want but both walk away empty handed. It all results in a standstill that is about as thrilling as a staring contest.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
December 17, 2012
For all the satisfying ironies that are dished up... some of what we're served is hopelessly naive.
December 12, 2012
A crisp, procedural-type throwback to 1980s-style financial world thrillers about rich men behaving badly and skirting danger.
Full Review | Original Score: B
December 4, 2012
The intricate, richly detailed screenplay is full of surprises, smart dialogue and intriguing minor characters, and manages to be smart and adult while still making all the financial stuff comprehensible.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
November 17, 2012
Richard Gere turns in a fine, nuanced performance of a very complicated character, Robert Miller, head of a hedge fund who made a bad financial bet on a Russian copper mine.
Full Review | Original Score: B+

Whether there is even the possibility of redemption at the end is part of what makes the film so gripping.
