Well constructed, directed and acted. I had some trouble with the ending, but I think I figured it out. Spoiler : if he had not signed his wife's document, wouldn't he be in handcuffs? Some people complain about this movie, that Susan Sarandon was under used for instance. I like the "gotcha in the end" quality that her character commands. And for all the moralists that scream that the rich bastard got away with it, I want to believe that he did care about his family as he stated early and that this was a brutal punch to him as well as losing all his money, he lost see him in handcuffs would have been the ordinary story.

This film is at its best with Gere under pressure....which is most of the movie.
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.

Good straight forward conspiracy / cover-up story that is worth a watch. Gere is very good alongside Sarandon

This is a really good movie. It has a plot that is not too hard to follow and not to easy either. I think this represents the real way it is on Wall Street.

A story where events spiral out of control, but each of the main characters has flaws, including the police investigating so there's nowhere for the audiences sympathies to go, however it has a good pace to it.

I always thought that a good thriller means some intelligent detective work, engaging hide and seek chases or mind blowing mystery. This film changed my assumptions completely. It runs high on fast drama, exploring 4-5 major characters in depth. The wife and the daughter prove their point with just 2 scenes each.

I saw this movie while I was traveling from vacations to home, and I fell asleep like 10 times, the moral is: don´t see it while you are traveling

Robert Miller: "What you did is way beyond the money."

Jimmy Grant: "Nothing is beyond money for you, Robert. We both know that."

Wildly entertaining and featuring a stand-out performance from Richard Gere, Arbitrage grabs the viewers attention and doesn't let go, making for a thrill of a viewing as well as a unique statement on society (particularly the upper class).

Richard Gere was very good in this thriller of a man's world colliding when he is about to be charged with fraud.

With a cast led by the charming Richard Gere, "Arbitrage" takes you on a roller coaster into one businessman's life as his world continues to collapse in on himself. With lie after lie being spun, Robert Miller watches as his life, his company and the futures of his family are put on the line as he tries to undo all the damage he has caused. Add a fatal car accident on top of it all and Robert Miller comes to realize he may not make it out unscathed.

Richard Gere is fantastic as he uses the acting abilities for which he is so famous for. Susan Sarandon is astounding as ever though I wish we could have seen more of her character. I felt she was very underutilized. The storyline isn't bad but I felt it dragged on a little bit longer than it should have as well as it had some weak spots. Some parts were a bit confusing but you nevertheless get the whole picture. The dialogue is crisp and never dull. All in all, not a bad film. Definitely one to watch, but not really to buy and own.

Deftly reminded me a movie of a similar theme 'The Player' which I enjoyed rather more. Features a generic but a very effective modern background score that is tense and runs as an undercurrent to an ocean of subplots (some more meaningless than the others) which underwhelms the atmosphere it tried to build. The performances were superb especially Gere in the lead role and an actress I have come to admire recently, Brit Marling.

A trading empire magnate Robert Miller (Richard Gere) is in the process to sell off his company in haste that is sitting on a huge pile of cooked accounts showing fraudulent numbers. With his business experience, contacts and shrewd mind, he thought he could get away without giving a whiff of the fraud to his nonchalant wife Ellen (Susan Sarandon) or his brilliant daughter Brooke (Brit Marling). When all things are falling into plan an accident kills Julie (Laetitia Casta) a woman with whom he has a clandestine affair. When Robert looks for an unlikely person for help, a detective Michael (Tim Roth) picks the scent of him and is coming close to rocking his boat.

What I first liked about his one is that it is not one a movie that shies away from worldly themes of good over evil or a climax with a moral epiphany. Next comes the frenetic screenplay that doesn't give you the breathing space to linger on the numerous flaws along the way. Performances and background score elevate the movie even more boosted by its slick editing.

Tense atmosphere with a frenetic screenplay leaves you with a gasp to catch your breath.

Outstanding acting across the board, taut direction by Nicholas Jarecki. Highly recommended.
