Worth taking a gamble on this one
- Owning Mahowny review by BE
Philip Seymour Hoffman giving a very understated performance as a compulsive gambler in what was apparently a true story. He turned in a terrific performance as did John Hurt as a casino boss. I'm surprised JH travelled to the USA for this movie as he had more of a supporting role. I'm not sure the movie would have held the interest with any other actor than PHS taking the lead role but he did and it did!
