Arbitrage

Arbitrage has solid plot: the story about tough life of high-flying financier entertains. The rich also cry! It remind me of Wall Street 2, but without much of the fluffy staff about good people and worthy causes. Graydon Carter, by the way, played in both movies. The development of the story is grievously slow though, with only a couple of nice unexpected plot turns. Some of the scenes are simply brilliant, like the negotiation in the cafe with Mayfield.

Richard Gere is back into shape; well, he is in a better shape here than he was in Movie 43. Tim Roth plays Lightman again, but still delivers! Funny enough, Monica Raymund is there too.

Overall, smart movie that does not attempt to paint bankers as idiots. 

3/5
