the acting was good, but the story was so so

A very interesting movie that takes an unexpected turn early on. An absorbing look at the life of this wealthy hedge-fund magnate and his family. Great performances by the entire cast and never a dull moment throughout!

Rixhard Gere at the top of his game great performance

I could not follow the plot of this movie. I don't care if Richard Gene was in this movie or not as the actors were believable and did their part well. The movie was shallow and interrupted by bits of intrigue. I would not receommend this movie to anyone. It was disappointing and left a bad taste in my mouth. I should have just turned it off before the bitter end.

Had the acting not been above par, I would have given this movie one or two stars. I really don't like movies where there are no redeeming qualities to be found in the self destructive main character. Bummer....

Between this cast and the conviction Jarecki brings to the table, the film feels incredibly accomplished for a first feature. Full Review

San Francisco Chronicle
Features an exceedingly dapper Richard Gere in a series of nice suits and handsome close-ups that serve no purpose other than to remind us how exceedingly dapper Richard Gere looks in nice suits and handsome close-ups. The rest of the movie registers as a loss of: time, money, talent and logic. Full Review

Washington Post
There are few cinematic pleasures as satisfying to behold as an actor in a role that fits him like a Savile Row suit. Richard Gere offers just such gratification in Arbitrage, a silky, sophisticated Wall Street thriller that finds the actor utterly in his prime, wearing his age and accumulated emotional wisdom with warmth, charisma and nonstop appeal.

Los Angeles Times
Writer-director Nicholas Jarecki squarely lands that punch, creating a tense and chilling horror story for financially fraught times. Full Review
Glenn Heath Jr.
Slant Magazine
If the film covers well-tread territory (a morally bankrupt player trying to prolong his own influence), it does so with pinpoint control of mood and theme. Full Review
