Owning Mahowny (23-Jan-2003)

Director: Richard Kwietniowski

Writer: Maurice Chauvet

Based on a book: Stung: The Incredible Obsession of Brian Molony by Gary Stephen Ross

True story-inspired crime drama tells the tale of a high-powered gambling-addicted bank manager and his messy situation.

Dan Mahowny -- a silver-screen caricature of real-life Canadian bank clerk and convicted embezzler Brian Molony -- is a morally-challenged employee at a big-name Canadian bank, consumed by a growing lust for easy money and addiction to gambling as he moves up through the ranks of his employer and gains access to ever-larger accounts valued in the millions. Mahowny's compulsions ultimately give way to embezzlement, sending a long line of dominoes tumbling down one another another in a character piece about a man and his torturous vices.

Review by Nic (posted on 6-Nov-2007)

Owning Mahoney begins with an unassuming mile manner man talking about his first job at a bank. The movie details how the life of a talented middle-management banker spirals out of control. One small act of deceit leads to a larger cover-up, which is covered up by another act of deceit. Throughout out the film you desperately wish that the lead character would overcome his demons and make wise decides. The main character is extreemly likable dispite his flaws.
