ARGO (2012)




Director:
Ben Affleck

Writer:
Chris Terrio

Starring:
Ben Affleck
Alan Arkin
Bryan Cranson and others

Argo is a triumph of film-making, the Oscar jury is blind because thats the only excuse that would hold some ground for denying this movie and Ben Affleck the nod for best director. A thriller in all aspects, this movie grips one from its very first screen. Alan Arkin is exceptional though I am not really sure whether his performance is Oscar worthy.  Affleck's acting is also brilliant but the main hero of this movie is its stunning script by Chris Terrio. The script is fast paced and layered with memorable scenes. The fact that humour is infused into the movie gives it an added punch. If you miss this movie you have only yourself to blame.
