Ben Affleck doesn't merely direct Argo, he directs the hell out of it, nailing the quickening pace, the wayward humour, the nerve-frying suspense. There's no doubt he's crafted one of the best movies of the year.Rolling Stone
Oh, that Affleck! Having blown all memory of Box Office flops Gigli and Jersey Girl out of our heads thanks his stunning directing debut Gone Baby Gone and brilliant follow-up The Town, Ben Affleck (Good Will Hunting) now raises his game with this absolutely sublime political thriller. Based on a declassified true story, Argo chronicles ‘the best bad idea’ the CIA have every come up with, as agent Tony Mendez (Affleck) attempts to help a group of American diplomats escape Iran during the 1979 hostage crisis, by getting them to pose as a Canadian film crew making a fake sci-fi movie. An outstanding mixture of humour and suspense that cements Affleck’s reputation as one of the most exciting filmmakers in Hollywood.
