The movie nobody
Winner of eight Academy Awards including Best Picture, The Movie Nobody Knows Who It Is a cult comedy about a con artist who robs banks on a daily basis. Mike Epps stars as the title character, while Ed Harris and Jennifer Aniston have also garnered Oscar nominations for their roles. The film was set to be a low budget film with little expectation from either the studio or the audience, but it went on to make over three-quarters of a billion dollars worldwide. Despite its complex story and award-winning plot, Nobody Knows Who It Is an absolutely funny film. Many of its elements, such as the American accent, were copied from the Coen brothers’ movies.
There are many different things that make up the movie Nobody Knows Who It Is. One of the biggest differences between this movie and the Coen brothers’ Noises Off is the language. While the movie utilizes standard American English, much of the dialogue is British. The age rating for the movie is actually PG, which meant that it could be viewed by both children and adults. Although the subject of thievery is touched upon throughout, the language in the movie is most definitely adult oriented. Most of the humor derives from the characters’ accents and quips.
The plot of the movie revolves around a con artist named Naishuller (Epps), who works at a New York bank. Because he does not visit the office on his days off, the manager has given him the task of cleaning the attics in the bank on the weekends. As the job progresses, Naishuller becomes more successful at performing the tasks assigned to him, but on the wrong day, he steals cash from the vault. He then claims to have lost the whole amount of money, but he actually escaped with a few hundred dollars worth of gold flakes in his pocket.
When the manager discovers the missing cash, he goes after Naishuller, who runs off to Vermont. With the help of his cousin tracker Odenkirk (Philip Seymour Hoffman), the manager tracks Naishuller to a cabin in the woods where he meets a couple of hippies who recognize him as a “wolf in sheep’s clothing.” The leader of the group, Flip (Affenpinsha Akhavan), asks the guard to let him free so that he can help Naishuller find work. When the guard refuses, Flip uses his charm to convince the guard’s partner, Stint (Joe Mantegna), to allow him to accompany Naishuller into the city.
In order to capture Naishuller, the movie writer creates an intricate series of events that unfold over the course of the next few days. First, Flip and Stint go to the bank to retrieve the money; however, they are pursued by a group of boys (including the son of the manager) who want to steal the money. Meanwhile, the boys discover that Naishuller has been hired to babysit their children. As night falls, the boys sneak away from the home in the woods, and Naishuller is attacked by a bear-wielding Native American.

Fortunately, Naishuller manages to fend off the Indian, but at the end of the movie, the air is revealed to be a front for a ringleader of the tribe. Just as the movie writer predicted, the band uses the money stolen from the bank to hire an armed group to protect itself. While Naishuller flees into the forest with the children, a shotgun-wielding Native American pursues him. The movie ends with the noir and the Native American agreeing to work together, but before they can close the deal, the air is killed by a white man who then escapes back into the reservation.
The movie ends with the Native Americans mourning, while the noir prepares to shoot them all. Before they can execute the plan, the air’s cousin Chirp (John Turturro) arrives on the scene and convinces the remaining Native Americans to surrender. With the help of the other nodes, the Native American manages to shoot down the air, but in the meantime, the settlers continue their occupation. Days later, Naishuller is discovered dead, and the movie ends with the noir being buried with his family.
