||Synopsis: Dan Mahowny was a rising star at the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce. At twenty-four he was assistant manager of a major branch in the heart of Toronto's financial district. To his colleagues he was a workaholic. To his customers, he was astute, decisive and helpful. To his friends, he was a quiet, but humorous man who enjoyed watching sports on television. To his girlfriend, he was shy but engaging. None of them knew the other side of Dan Mahowny--the side that executed the largest single-handed bank fraud in Canadian history, grossing over $10 million in eighteen months to feed his gambling obsession.

Watch Owning Mahowny - Alternative Versions.
For anyone in Dan Mahowny's life who cared to look, all the signs were
there. Bad hair, disheveled clothes, no overcoat in Toronto in winter,
empty apartment and a '74 Dodge Dart. He should have had more but did
not. He had everything the addict needs - a source of income, a source
of his addiction and several "enablers" in his life.
Owning Mahowny tells the famous and true story of a mid-level bank
manager at the CIBC, who in the early 80s, stole $10,000,000 from
several high profile clients, and a few non-existent ones. All the
funds were lost in Atlantic City and Vegas. But this is not a con
movie, it is far more clever than that. It is a detailed and
devastating study of a gambling addiction.
We all know that Mahowny will get caught, but how and when. He has no
record, is not a criminal and he is well respected at his job. What
this film does almost better than anything is reveals how the day to
day events allows the protagonist to prolong his inevitable collapse.
As the film progresses, Mahowny becomes more and more paranoid. Every
open file, every meeting and every phone call represents his potential
downfall. Note how he maneuvers through key meetings and audits. But he
is not afraid of getting caught, he is afraid of losing his lifeline to
the thrill of the bet.
You just simply cannot say enough about both the leads in this film.
Philip Seymour Hoffman is spot on perfect as Mahowny, focused on the
next hand, rarely raising his eyes to the camera. John Hurt is also
wonderful as the malevolent casino boss who is all too happy to take
Mahowny's money and not care where it came from.
Had this film received better backing, Hoffman may well have received
his first Oscar nomination. As it stands, you will have to seek this
out on DVD. It is an edgy and well directed study in to the mind of an
addict. Not perfect, but I loved this from start to finish. ***1/2 out
