A Farmer's Hope
Ray McKinnon's The Accountant is the best short-film, comedy ever. I highly recommend it to everyone who feels a connection with others who are also facing everyday challenges. McKinnon's screen writing depicts the daily struggle local farmers have in trying to keep their farms out of bankruptcy. Ray McKinnon's portrayal of a rural accountant is so funny I almost fell out of my chair laughing. However, his character has a serious side when it comes to teaching family values, the southern way. Eddie King's portrayal of David O'Dell, a farmer, touches my heart as he reminds me of a nurturing father, who wants to preserve his heritage. Walton Coggins does a great job in portraying Tommy O'Dell, the business-minded brother, who shows up at the family farm during a crisis and suddenly becomes interested in saving it. This movie shows how people play upon each other's feelings and how they might attempt to beat the system. The film crew does a superb job with both the sound and visual effects. The music sets the tone, which makes the viewers feel what the characters are also feeling. Then, the camera movement shows the exact location of the movie in single frames. This technique allows viewers to analyze when and where the movie takes place. Then, a large camera shot brings the whole setting together, and viewers are surprised when they realize the actual time period. Camera angles show the intensity between each character during emotionally, revealing scenes. This movie also uses metaphors to visually describes life's transitions in practical ways.Viewers are left guessing on what will happen next. I hope to see more movies like The Accountant from Ginny Mule Productions.
