Argo
2012
In 1979, when Iranian militants seize the American embassy, six Americans slip into the Canadian embassy for protection, prompting the CIA to concoct an elaborate plot to rescue them by pretending that they are filmmakers rather than diplomats.

Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”

A great story, well told, with a light touch on both the tension and the Hollywood-insider humor. If Ben Affleck is directing respectable movies to make up for schlock like Daredevil and Pearl Harbor, he's welcome to keep it up. The movie takes great pains to accurately recreate the wardrobe and photography of the period, but the songs on the soundtrack are weirdly all generic hits instead of deep cuts.

Evie Totty: “It ruled.”

"Argo fuck yourself!"

Well done I thought. When they ... called off ... the operation, even though I knew what was going to happen, I found myself holding my breath anyway.
