I’ve always felt Richard Gere is an often undervalued actor. This is probably due to his links as the stereotypical romantic lead in the likes of An Officer And A Gentlemen, Pretty Woman and Runaway Bride. After those huge box-office hits left the ladies swooning, it’s easy to forget his superb roles in Terrence Malick’s Days Of Heaven, Paul Schrader’s American Gigolo and my own personal favourite, the sadistic corrupt police officer, Dennis Peck, in Mike Figgis’ twisted cop thriller, Internal Affairs. Arbitrage sees Gere back in those, latter, murkier worlds and he’s all the better
