In the able hands of actor-director Ben Affleck, an obscure piece of history which has recently been disclassified from the CIA vaults has turned into an intense, nail-biting movie that will have you on the edge of your seat during its final act.

I smell Oscar gold for Argo which boasts an excellent ensemble cast which includes Bryan Crayston, John Goodman and Alan Arkin. The pairing of the last two veterans played off each other very well and created the most laughs for the movie. It also has an especially taut script which is every bit as relevant today as it was in the late 70s.

This real story is a further testament of the good that we can create in the midst of so much senseless violence around us. Argo not shows the triumph of the human spirit, but is itself a cinematic triumph as well.
