Movie Review: Arbitrage (2012)

Starring Richard Gere, Susan Sarandon, Laetitia Casta, Nate Parker, Tim Roth, and Brit Marling, this movie turned out to be surprisingly good.

The acting, of course, is great.

It is a story of the state of the United States socioeconomics today. There is a them and us: the very wealthy and the rest, the pragmatists and the idealists, the leaders and the followers.

The movie shows us that money is god primarily in the minds of those with extraordinary material wealth.

Similarly, patriarchal hierarchy is openly acknowledged by the same.

Business is done exclusively for the sake of making money and wealth accumulation which serve to maintain the mentioned status quo.

Unconscionable decisions and actions allow this culture to come out on top in all areas of life. The purpose of their existence is to assume a role (of “the patriarch”) and play it well regardless of the degree of dissociation from authentic living.

The saddest part of the disaster that is patriarchy is that it is made possible by the women who submit to it. It is women who support it and reproduce more of the same.

Without the participation of women, whether voluntary or involuntary, patriarchal hierarchy would cease to exist.
