Owning Mahowny

Part of The Master: Philip Seymour Hoffman
Sunday, September 18, 2016, 5:00 p.m.

Dir. Richard Kwietniowski. 2003, 104 mins. 35mm. With Philip Seymour Hoffman, Minnie Driver, John Hurt. Based on the true story of the largest one-man bank fraud in Canadian history, Philip Seymour Hoffman is at his best as a mild-mannered bank manager with a nasty gambling habit and a job that gives him access to a $20 million account. Of his resemblance to the film’s real-life inspiration, author Gary Ross said “Philip somehow managed to assimilate the psychic essence of Mahowny, a yawning emptiness that nothing except gambling was able to fill.”
