Argo, 2012.

Directed by Ben Affleck.

Starring Ben Affleck, Bryan Cranston, Taylor Schilling, Kyle Chandler, John Goodman, Alan Arkin, Zeljko Ivanek, Clea DuVall, Tate Donovan and Victor Garber.


Based on a true story, Argo retells the events surrounding the extraction of 6 Americans after the storming of the Us Embassy in Iran.

Regardless of how you feel about its Best Picture win at the 2013 Oscars, it cannot be disputed that Argo is a very good film.  Ben Affleck is proving - or has proved I should say - that he is a very accomplished director who can tell a fascinating story ripe expertly crafted.  That being said I think it could have been improved if we had felt a little something more for the characters, the situation, and knowledge of it is what caused the majority of the tension, as I had no real investment in the characters themselves, only situation they were in. »
