Year Of Release: 2012

Review Date: March 31, 2013

Rating: R

Running time: 100 minutes

   Site Rating: 4 out of 10 stars

"Arbitrage" starring actor Richard Gere is an engaging film, but it managed to veer off course and conclude with an unresolved ending, which I dislike in filmmaking. Wrap it up, people!

Gere stars as a Bernard Madoff type, Richard Miller, running a hedge fund with a ponzi scheme embedded within it to cover his losses in an offshore deal that was too good to be true. Miller lost a few hundred million in a Russian precious metals investment and had to borrow money and inflate his profits, to keep the SEC and investors at bay. 

His personal life is a mess as well, as he is cheating on his wife with a younger woman who demands much of him, until it all goes extremely wrong. This film is another example of why people should cheat on their spouse. It always breeds trouble in real life. Leave it alone.
