The Accountant is Pixar’s latest family heart-warmer, a comedy about an ant who keeps the books for his colony and – wait, no. Sorry. That’s wrong. The Accountant is a movie where Ben Affleck plays an accountant who is on the autism spectrum, whose clients are mostly murderers and scumbags, and who shoots people in the fucking face. It’s great. It would be better without the side plot involving J.K. Simmons, and it would be better sans its plethora of late-stage exposition, but it works anyways, as I dictate in my review for Paste Magazine.
Affleck’s best work. He should receive an Oscar nomination for it, he portrays several personalities with mesmerizing facets. Fantastic.
Thank you for this review.
You’re very welcome. I’m happy to do it! (Thanks for the comment!)
