Norman Instrueret af Joseph Cedar
Gere’s performance… is warm, aggravating, moving, and laugh-out-loud funny. Only an actor this lively and inherently charming would understand the perils of coming off as too lively and too ingratiating; every encounter Norman has feels a little off, his behavior always edging into too-muchness. Yet how beautifully and funnily Gere realizes the character’s awkwardness! The longer you spend with Norman, the more you love him, the more you appreciate his generosity and curiosity.

The kind of scalpelled character study that strips away dignity along with each layer of artifice, Norman is an intriguing but uncomfortable watch… It’s a light-footed shimmy of a performance from Gere, who connects us with an unexpected dignity in the soul of this professional parasite. However, the sophistication of Gere’s work is slightly undermined by a chummy, jovial score that over-emphasises the wacky eccentricities of the characters on the screen.
