Movie Mini-Review: "Argo"
Over the weekend, I finally had a moment to see Argo, and let me tell you: this glorious film set during the Iranian Revolution is made of 100% thrillingly absorbing narrative, great direction, fantastic casting, and Oscar material. I want to see Oscar nods for Ben Affleck's magnificently suspenseful direction and Alan Arkin's turn in an unforgettable supporting role. In fact, Argo deserves a nom for Best Picture, period. I'll do a full writeup when I can, but for now let me say this: Argo gets a solid A from me. It's one of the best movies I've seen this year. GO SEE THIS IMMEDIATELY.
