This is a must see!
30 March 2002 | by (Dallas TX) – See all my reviews

I saw this film with all of the other nominated short films. The Accountant was clearly the best. I was so glad that Ray Mckinnon won for this film. It was a breath of fresh air. It was funny, plausible, and thought provoking. I hope it is available for viewing on the internet someday.
