Director: Ben Affleck
Argo is simple. It's about sneaking out six Americans out of Iran through a Hollywood movie cover up. The plan is insane, and it worked. Ben Affleck managed to take a simple but complicated story and turn it into an amazing film. The build up was rather slow, but it was thrilling to see the entire event unfold; it even had me at the edge of my seat at one point. No wonder this has been raking in awards; it's smart, thrilling and interesting.
