[8.50/10] Argo (2012)

Argo (2012)

QuickRating: Over the last five years, Ben Affleck proved himself an extremely capable director, but he's really at the top of his game with "Argo" - a smart and thoughtful based-on-a-true story thriller, that is constantly engrossing from start to finish, and so tense and thrilling, it will keep you on the edge of your seat. Affleck's direction is precise, the pacing is taut, the performances are excellent, and the retro-ish tone of the film captures the late early 1980s feel phenomenally well.

Knew you'd like that one! Incredibly tense, even knowing how it ends. Hope it wins an Oscar for something. Going up against Lincoln will be difficult though.

Alex, I certainly did. I thought it was the best Affleck movie yet.

Is Lincoln really that good? Silly question. D.D. Lewis is in it. Of course it is. :)
