Character actor Michael Shannon has been nominated for his second Oscar for his role in the 2016 thriller Nocturnal Animals. "No Small Parts" takes a look at some of the other characters he's played in the past.
Daniel Bennett gets more than he bargained for after a night in the cells leads to a meeting with a man known to most as The Accountant. Forced in to a situation with looming debts and a unsupporting wife, Daniel soon finds that he cannot stand being in a position where his working life poses a threat to actually living. After plotting an audacious plan to take a large amount of money from his dirty employer Daniel soon realises that in order to steal from these people he'll have to act like them - and run faster than them.

You people want to take this away from me?! Why, so you can crawl in after I've gone? That's what you people can never understand: you take one away, and another will always fill his place. It's not criminal, it's capitalism. I'm the president and C.E.O and this, well this is a hostile takeover and I like it.

This was probably the most promising film to come from the world of independent cinema in that year before the millennium that was 1999. It was cut with such pep and verve as to bely its low-budget roots. The sublime grain of the expanded super 16mm stock just blows anything that the new indi world of digital has put out to-date.
Although one can see just why the acting 'talent' in this one went away, it is nothing-short of criminal that the writing/directing/producing talent of Messrs. White and Calver is seemingly lost to us. And so if this was their first effort, the world would have been a better place on an artistic level if somebody out there had stood up and noticed and given them a chance at an encore.
