5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining thriller, 12 Jan 2013
This review is from: Arbitrage [US Import] [Blu-ray] [2012] [Region A] (Blu-ray)
Very entertaining legal financial thriller with Richard Gere perfect as an unscrupulous, ethically challenged multimillionaire who on the eve of his sixtieth birthday sees his position as a great businessman and philanthropist turn increasingly precarious. His business empire was actually built on fraud committed to his investors, and the only solution he sees to avoid being caught for cooking the books is selling his company to a businessman that is playing hard to get. Even worse for him, her lover (Laetitia Casta) dies in a car accident while he was driving; he flees, but the police see him increasingly as a suspect for her murder, and a dogged detective (Tim Roth) will spare no stone in order to catch him. On the family side, his own daughter (Brit Marling) realizes he is a fraud; only his wife (Susan Sarandon) seems (alas, only seems) willing to stand by him. The film is fast and entertaining throughout. And for what is worth, on my own limited experience with businessmen, I think that Gere is impressive in showing the manic compulsive behavior of many of them. Fine film debut by director Andrew Jarecki.
