Owning Mahowny

Actor Philip Seymour Hoffman plays a great creep. As Truman Capote, he won an Oscar. In 2009’s Doubt, he was nominated for another. He’s up to his patented smarmy style in this 80s-era story of compulsive (and dangerous) gambling. During the day, he’s a putz assistant bank manager – after hours, he’s a hardcore gambling addict. When his habit gets too big to fund, he turns to the closest source of capital: the bank. Embezzlement begins and so does Mahowny’s undoing. It’s a sick and tragicomic look into the seedy world of gambling. Are you in?
