Behind the cover of a small-town CPA office, he works as a freelance accountant for some of the world's most dangerous criminal organizations.

Between 1:49:15 and 1:51:41 Braxton and Wolff fight and argue because Braxton blames Wolff for the death of their father. Braxton tells Wolff that if he had needed to attend the funeral, Wolff should have called Braxton to back him up. In the funeral flashback (1:35:07-1:36:15), Wolff never comes near the casket. It is the father who seems most affected by the death, with Wolff either backing him up or attending on orders from a superior officer. Wolff never corrects Braxton with the truth; as an autistic it would be more in keeping for him to be honest about why the father was there, rather than taking the blame to shield their father's choice.

This film connected with me on so many levels. It delivered in ways I was not expecting. I was laughing, cheering, crying, and ultimately walked out of that theater feeling more than satisfied. I want to go see it again. Something that is great about this film is that there are things you will pick up on more clearly through a second viewing, but it is not required to fully enjoy the film. Like I said in my title, I can say without a shadow of doubt that this film is better than any other film released this year. However, I will follow that by saying I have yet to see "Hell or High Water". So it's more like 99.9% sure. We will see how it holds up against the remaining anticipated releases. I do honestly believe it should be nominated come award season. This film is phenomenal and if you do not see this film before you die, you are doing yourself a disservice.
