Owning Mahoney.

A must see for members of this forum.



Damn Straight. Thank you. Hoffman played it as cold and as honest a gambling junkie as can be, ironically hiding it flawlessly until it all came crashing down. Uncanny parallel.

I will also say in that movie John Hurt played a superb "sublimely greasy and greedy casino manager" in Atlantic city who knew his deal but took his cash anyhow.

John Hurt heaped more disgrace on the gaming industry in that role than ANY I have ever seen.

It's an art to appreciate simple things. To live like a millionaire you don't have to become one. Unfortunately, most people believe money is a solution to all their problems. Drugs and alcohol give you a boost and for a while person feels happy and energized, but there is always the opposite side of a coin, these people pay a hefty price for their enjoyment.The man had a talent for acting , most of us dream about, but he failed where the solution is on a surface.

I have no sympathy for these drug addicts, especially heroine. They get what they deserve.

I am glad that you have never had drugs touch your life directly or via your loved ones but people don't choose to be drug addicts.

Actually if you were to get hooked on anything from, a damage to your body point of view, heroin is probably is the easiest on your system. You can actually function quite normally well hooked on it if you don't have to spend all your time worrying about how you are going to get the next hit.
Be careful when you follow the masses, the M is sometimes silent.

OTOH, heroin is probably the hardest one to break away from. It is the drug that really first destroyed the black community. Main drug that spreads AIDS. Not just hard to break away from but probably easiest to get hooked on. It is the last drug I would want to see a loved one get into.

I believe it was Steven Tyler who stated that the only drug harder to quit than heroin was nicotine

Norbert is the awesome! I saw him in "Is He Dead?" a few years ago. Very funny guy but I kept thinking at the time, he reminds me so much of Philip Seymour Hoffman.
