Inside Christian's trailer's closet door is a black and white collection of six "smiley face" pictures with different emotions shown. It's the same picture that is hanging in the Harbor Neuroscience Institute when his parents are talking to the neurologist. Three of them are the same faces he draws on the melons that he uses for target practice. See more »
When Chris first shows up to work at Living Robotics, Dana is there to greet him. No work has been done, other than Dana having collated financial files. Next scene we see them sharing space for lunch; I am assuming about 4 hours has passed. Finally we see Chris back in his work room, getting his pens out and preparing to work. But no work has been done. Did it take Chris 4 hours to decide to eat lunch? See more »

Engaging n entertaining drama/thriller. Ben Affleck's best performance.
When it released in theatre i dismissed it thinking it might be another dull movie on an accountant. I thot another Bourne rip off or shaky cam stuff. Boy i was so wrong. This movie is a very good drama/thriller. Saw this recently on a rented DVD. Affleck stars as The Accountant who has some dark secrets and illegal dealings. He had a rough childhood as an autistic kid who was raised by his army dad who made sure that his kids learn military training n Indonesian martial arts so that they r not exploited. Affleck credibly adopted the traits, behaviors and symptoms of autism. His performance was very good. The movie starts slowly but its not boring. There is sufficient character development n the story has good amount of twists n turns. There are several intersecting story lines in this film and one branch of that is the federal department tracking The Accountant. There is ample amount of action, both gun firing n hand to hand combat. The headshots r brutal, the body count is high n the movie ended well leaving room for a much needed sequel. But it is not ur typical action like John wick or The Equalizer. Thankfully it is not shot in hand held camera a la Jason bourne n Taken style jus to make it appear fast paced. The movie is engaging n entertaining. The suspense n tension is maintained throughout. Director O'Connor succeeded in normalising autism and showing that behavioural conditions should not get in the way of anyone's life.
