The best nap I ever took.

I am a Richard Gere fan, but, this wasn't my cup of tea. Shut it off before it bored me to death.

Can't believe Richard Gere could see anything redeeming in this movie. Total waste of time. There are so many other movies to see.

I do like Richard Gere but it was so painful to watch. I had to pause to continue. Glad I did go
to the movie house would have had to request a refund.

I adored this movie. Why I love this movie: directed by Joseph Cedar who also made Footnote. Richard Gere gives an amazing nuanced performance. His last few movies have been terrific: Arbitrage, Time Out of Mind). He is Norman, an amoral conniver, a hustler in the New York way, but at the same time, we really root for him. We see into his big heart, in my opinion. Terrific cast: Lior Ashkenazi (see A Late Marriage, Walk on Water), Steve Buscemi (as a rabbi no less!), Michael Sheen and Charlotte Gainsbourg. The movie has a wonderful energy and unpredictability. Juxtapositions of characters when least expected. In the special features Gere and Cedar talk about our inner Normans. Isn't he lurking somewhere in all of us?

Well, I couldn't do it. Watched a half hour, and didn't get it. It was boring too. I got it because I like Richard Gere, but I thought this one was a stinker.

Strange but interesting film for "grown ups" which will reward you with wonderful acting and a complex plot that requires your careful attention. Richard Gere is terrific in this dramatic role, far removed from his "Pretty Woman" matinee idol look. Great supporting cast.
