Big Screen: Arbitrage

Yes, there are holes you could find in the plot after the fact.

BUT I really liked this movie, both in the moment and afterward. It was super tense, pulled out almost to the breaking point, and there were some really excellent performances.

I liked it even more after listening to director Nicholas Jarecki’s interview on The Treatment with Elvis Mitchell, my favorite and most often listened to podcast.

The one place I felt the movie really faltered was in the girlfriend/Richard Gere relationship. Make us think he actually loves her and this film would be that much stronger. As it is, she’s too irrelevant for some of the plot points.
