My Favorite All Time Film
19 October 2007 | by jbbeverleySee all my reviews

The Accountant is nothing short of genius. Thank you Ray McKinnon for standing up to the "characatures and stereotypes", and for exposing the cultural conspiracy for what it is.

If you like serious messages coated with great humor, brilliant writing, and wonderful acting performances, you MUST check out this film! This is a moving portrait of the modern American Landscape in it's true light.

It is rare in this day and age for a writer/director to show such guts and intelligence in one swoop. Ray McKinnon delivers three-fold, and The Accountant has honestly become my favorite all time film; short or feature length.
