I think the film is called ‘The Accountant’.

Or maybe Bruce is an accountant because he is accounting for a film of some other name.

Either way, it is an interesting look at autism.

Just saw it last week. I had to laugh. The protagonist is depicted as a ruthless, coldblooded killer whose lack of empathy is attributed at least in part to his autism. Then at the very end they include what amounts to a public service message on behalf of the autistic. Bit of a mixed message, there.

The Accountant is violent popcorn fare—an exuberant, illogical action-packed thriller that’s only message is, “Sit down and watch Ben Affleck shoot people for a while.”

Watching Ben Affleck “pretend” to be autistic was the bets part.
