I have been so unhappy with the movies released overall in years past. This movie reminded me there are decent scrips/subjects that don't rely on comic books. Argo has good balance between humor and suspense. Bryan Cranstan and John Goodman do an excellent job opposite Affleck and Arkin in keeping the storyline moving and interesting. It is not a true documentary and never claims to be. Affleck deserves the credit on this one.
