A more definitive portrait is limned by Richard Gere as an archetypal (or stereotypical) Jewish character in Joe Cedar’s “Norman”, a performance that is near-perfect and marks the full transition of Gere from his pretty-boy stardom of decades ago to great character actor. Casting gentiles in most of the major Jewish roles in this film should not be controversial, as certainly all recent Mafia epics have cast Brits, Irish and Australian actors in the Italian parts for the obvious reason that Italian actors, even De Niro, are tired of the ethnic gangster stereotype unless it’s a comedy or spoof. Gere creates a memorable and unique character that avoids the obvious clichés. Just as in “Pretty Woman” he so ably played second-fiddle to his co-star Julia Roberts (in the role that made her a star) here Gere is actually overshadowed in the charisma department by his amazing Israeli co-star Lior Ashkenazi as Eshel, a minor Israeli politician befriended (for purely self-serving reasons) by Gere as Norman Oppenheinmer, Eshel later becoming his country’s powerful prime minister. Norman is a finagler (I couldn’t place the proper Yiddish word to describe him), with a compulsion to inveigle his way into people’s good graces usually in the manner of a “cold call” handled in person, in order to make them beholden to him for future payoff. It’s analogous to the premise behind Puzo’s “The Godfather”, in which Don Corleone does favors that ultimately will be paid back when the time is propitious, and is best described in the film’s wonderful hand-drawn charts which Kevin Bacon-like link people together in complicated diagrams. Besides its obvious content, the film works on a different level to show the negative side of our era’s current craze for “networking”, a practice that has been enshrined as the cure-all for unemployment (or underemployment) at a certain level of society but which in this case involves extreme, insidious manipulation. Starting with buying the visiting Eshel an expensive pair of shoes as the Israeli visits New York City on government business (Isaach De Bankole as the shoe salesman is the first of numerous terrific small- role performances by instantly recognizable actors who usually have leading parts in movies), Norman compulsively fabricates far-fetched stories of his linkage to everybody while creating tenuous links in order to concoct complicated schemes, which he calls “Strategies” on his business card.
