News & Interviews for Owning Mahowny
Critic Reviews for Owning Mahowny
Whether or not you think of gambling as a vice, you can bet on Owning Mahowny.
Owning Mahowny is an unflashy but fascinating meditation on addiction and greed.
what was fascinating character study becomes banal and unconvincing cautionary tale
...a movie that rejects the pyrotechnics, glamour and spectacle-mongering of mainstream Hollywood yet manages to engage, connect and transfix.
Watching Hoffman completely give himself over to his addiction is pretty draining. Although the film has a subtext ... it's basically a ride down to the bottom with an addict.
Audience Reviews for Owning Mahowny
Philip Seymour Hoffman is great as the gambling-obsessed Bank Manager. It's really suspenseful and fascinating watching his gambling getting waaay out of control.
Hoffman is perfect.
I'm laughing so hard after reading the following "What do you think?" from The Onion.

Hilarious, yet oh so wrong. And it's even about my alma mater's school scandal.
So I'm gonna watch 'The Passion Of The Christ' tomorrow night. I really can't wait, even after reading all these negative reviews. If anything, they're only further increasing my confidence in this film's power.
In other news, I'm really craving donuts right now. Damn.
