Arbitrage Reviews

July 8, 2019
Arbitrage is a mechanically sound and consistently entertaining film, with some noteworthy performances. However, after the film concludes, it's hard to find anything to be enthusiastic about it.

Pointed but not polemical, [Nicholas] Jarecki's allegorical film moves along steadily, buoyed by an eerie and modern score, as it traces the fault lines of one man's delusions.

Jarecki surprisingly manages to draw out a sense of sympathy for his protagonist.

Arbitrage is unlikely to become a blockbuster, but it is clever, keeps us guessing and, in its credible depiction of the world of high finance, is more than a little chilling.

Studios rarely makes this type of film anymore; it's a solid thriller.

Arbitrage is packed with tension from start to finish.

Gere is outstanding. He's always looked good in a suit and had the ability to promise the world with one look, but these talents don't compare to his talent to portray a self-centered jerk... This is Gere at his best.

... even though Arbitrage winds up seeming awfully familiar, through Jimmy's deepening dilemma it offers insight into something rarely touched on in American cinema: what it's like to be used by the 1 percent.

So slyly and craftily entertaining even though it probably doesn't bear close scrutiny, I didn't much care. It wasn't epic. It didn't ask me to ponder the meaning of life. And it's good.

Underneath the surface is a hauntingly urgent requiem on the American Dream and the moral fabric of the country.

As someone who is susceptible to melodrama, I enjoyed much of Arbitrage.

Pleasing twists and moral dilemmas abound.

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.

Gere, who appears in nearly every scene of Arbitrage, turns in the best performance of his career, conveying with supreme skill and remarkable restraint the exquisite agony of Miller's desperation.

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.'

Really, it could use some nip/tuck on the screenplay, but the players are decent and the movie looks opulent enough.

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.
