Gambling movies retro 2

The " Outlander " star brings his character into the most dangerous situation yet: the world of online dating. Watch the video.

Following the unexplained suicide of his wife Liza, a web designer turns to gasoline fumes and remote-control airplanes while avoiding an inevitable conflict with his mother-in-law. A limo driver's blind date sparks a tale of love, betrayal, friendship, and grace centered around two working-class New York City couples. A blue collar worker tries to cover things up when his stepson is killed in a suspicious accident, but a local reporter senses that something's amiss.

Members of a world-renowned string quartet struggle to stay together in the face of death, competing egos and insuppressible lust. A sister and brother face the realities of familial responsibility as they begin to care for their ailing father. A movie crew invades a small town whose residents are all too ready to give up their values for showbiz glitz.

An aspiring writer is hired as a croupier at a casino, where he realizes that his life as a croupier would make a great novel. In an old school Las Vegas casino, its top gambling jinx breaks his curse when he falls in love, much to his boss' consternation. When two brothers organize the robbery of their parents' jewelry store the job goes horribly wrong, triggering a series of events that sends them, their father and one brother's wife hurtling towards a shattering climax.

An unlucky in love nurse finds her life taking a detour when her mother places a personals ad in the paper, while on the other side of Boston, a plumber is trying to change careers. A mob boss has the tough Claire and Nick pick up the guy, who lost money on his watch. Later, boss' Kitty runs away and Claire has to find her.

Anyone not scheming? Who's shot next? 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 ten million dollars in eighteen months to feed his gambling obsession.

Written by Sujit R. 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.

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.
