Richard Gere stars as a millionaire Wall Street financier with big troubles at work and a dead mistress, too.
It's always a bad sign when I have to look up the meaning of a movie title after seeing the movie and still don't know what it means. This was a big disappointment, although the acting was excellent. Richard Gere is always a pleasure to watch; he's confidant, capable, and charismatic, giving a very good performance as a single-minded and unscrupulous man. The problem here is the script, which is confusing and boring, and gives us no one to root for. None of the characters are likable and most of the dialogue consist of muffled references to Big Trade Deals that we aren't meant to fully understand.
The story paints a believable picture of a powerful man who can buy anything except, of course, his family's love. The movie is predictable and only interesting in brief spurts; basically, it's an unsympathetic and dull story. Recommended only for those who find high finance interesting.
