Although the set-up for the story was deliberate the last 40 minutes will have you on the edge of your seat, even if you know what happened in real life. Ben Affleck is certainly his generation's Clint Eastwood. Even better, because like in the under appreciated "The Town," Affleck has a great hand with his actors, including himself, as well packing lots of actions into each frame without spilling blood and guts all over the screen. Argo gives you faith in the human spirit when most movies try and take it away. Very much worth seeing and should be in the Oscar contender.
