What can you do in 39 minutes? Drive to downtown Chicago from Arlington Heights at 4 am? Paint a small closet? Plant 4 huckleberry bushes? How about watching this 2001 Academy Award winning "Best Short Film, Live Action" The Accountant?

Not to be confused with Ben Affleck's new thriller by the same name, this short film was written and produced by actors Ray McKinnon, Walter Groggins, and Lisa Blount. Groggins is best know for his 7 seasons starring in The Shield and in Justified, where he played Boyd Crowder for 74 episodes. Blount was the "pregnant" best friend of Debra Winger in An Officer and a Gentleman.

This DVD's been in our collection since 2009. I can't remember, but I might've been the one that originally requested we purchase it. The film is funny, clever and thought provoking. It has a great tagline: "Can one man, one hard drinking, chain smoking, backwoods accountant, stop a national conspiracy, change the course of history, and save a way of life? It's do-able...but it ain't gonna be purdy." It is well worth the 39 minute investment. You can even watch it while the closet paint dries...
