All Critics (123) | Top Critics (32) | Fresh (108) | Rotten (15)

  • I've had enough of Gere's breathtaking golden years tour de force performances. Because they're starting to look like screen-chewing.

  • Cedar might have built up a broader satirical thesis from all this wheeling and dealing, but he's happy to let the film rest gently on Gere's shoulders - these days, a pretty safe foundation.

    June 8, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • It's like an Arthur Miller play gone large-screen, complete with act divisions, and Israeli writer-director Joseph Cedar's script has a Miller-worthy density of moral wit.

    June 8, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • We're in a cut-throat world of politics and schmoozing but the wistful music and playful chapter titles give the film the feel of a folk tale or of a slightly darker version of a Woody Allen comedy.

    June 7, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Gere, who somehow seems to make himself physically smaller here, creates a character both infuriating and endearing.

    May 10, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • "Norman" is a small character study of a classic wannabe - think "The King of Comedy," set in the world of Jewish politics - and when it gets bogged down in international intrigue it loses its way.
