12.09.04DVR The story of legendary gambler Dan Mahowny who stole 10 million bucks to feed his habit. That's in 1980s dollars too. As usual, Philip Seymour Hoffman portrays a strong, human character that does things that I can't even imagine doing. His portrayal of Mahowny is top notch, unfortunately surrounded by a low-budget Canadian production. John Hurt and Minnie Driver offer OK efforts, but the sets look nothing like Atlantic City or Vegas so the high-roller-ness illusion is often shattered, which is a shame. It follows the based-on-a-true-story formula of no twist endings and a paragraph of text to read at the end, but overall it held my interest and felt worth watching to me.
