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.
This is a small story, as quiet and unassuming as its main character. And, like Mahowny, it makes few wrong moves and quite a few right ones.
Despite its intelligence, it's dreary and uninvolving, more an exercise in style than an act of love.
Audience Reviews for Owning Mahowny
hoffman creates a character who is trapped in a downward spiral of addicition. this is one interesting film that went unheard of. hoffman is criminally underrated and this role is proof of that
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.
