Perhaps as a longer film, and certainly as a TV series, this would work better as a thorough investigation of individual guilt and the whole U.S. justice system; nevertheless, this is an excellent, underrated work. However, the main reason that makes the film riveting is Richard Gere's fantastic, pretty much pitch-perfect, performance.
Un discreto film di genere, con un buon cast(anche se Tim Roth poteva essere sfruttato meglio),una solida sceneggiatura ed una regia intelligente ed umile. Senza molti fronzoli e vincoli narrativi,Jarecki ci propone uno spaccato del capitalismo moderno,in cui gli Eletti che detengono la ricchezza manovrano il mondo come burattinai,perchè in fin dei conti tutti hanno un prezzo e prima o poi l accordo si trova.3*
nothing really new... &... come on, everybody could make better fake-photos !!!
If you're waiting for the thrills with this movie, you're going to miss the movie entirely. Treat it like a drama. It's a very good, cold-hearted drama.
Richard Gere is excellent in this otherwise rather turgid drama about a successful Wall Street banker who finds himself in over his head when he flees the scene of a car accident that left his mistress dead. Now he risks not only exposing his crime, but his fraudulent deals. Mistakes bad decisions for moral complexity, becoming lost along the way between its two simultaneous dramas.
