The guy shows flawless acting in a suspense film about a man doing what's wrong and how it will bite you in the ass.
it's a study too of money talks and you can walk.
Gere plays a successful CEO who you think at first is a good family man.
You quickly realize he is kind of a sleeze ball who is having an affair with a younger woman.
Things spiral all of control when he gets in a car accident and kills her.
Instead of doing the right thing and calling 911, he flees the seen, calls someone to pick him up, which eventually involves him in the crime.
It spirals more out of control in this tense tout thriller that has a quick message abrupt ending.
Gere makes the Fantastic movie that is flawed but good nonetheless.
When the shit hits the fan it hits hard and steady.
And justice is in the eye of the beholder.
Written and directed by Nicholas Jarecki who used to work in Wall Street, providing yet another fascinating look about the industry. Stars Richard Gere as Robert Miller attempting to make a sale to avoid the gov't system. It's complicated but I've seen this movie some time ago.
Now, that's not to take anything away from the film's supporting cast. Brit Marling and Tim Roth in particular stand out, showing some starpower can be found in a limited-release feature. I was also happy to see familiar faces from House of Cards - Reg E. Cathey and Larry Pine.
As for the story itself, I was glad to see a film related to Wall Street that 1) didn't pummel you with technical details; and 2) closely explored the people behind the shady dealmaking. While more drama than thriller, I still enjoyed the pace of the film, especially as Robert's personal life proceeds in parallel to his business. Towards the end, though, I felt that there could have been further exploration of the familial consequences of Robert's actions, as well as Jimmy's future. All in all a very good movie and a splendid debut by the director Jarecki.
sure I've seen the storey before though!
