Ben Affleck new movie “Argo”
After the Oscar for best original screenplay won in 1998 with best friend Matt Damon for Good Will Hunting – rebel genius, the film directorial debut Gone Baby Gone (2007), we have found that its excellent qualities for writing were not just a flash in the pan. Three years later, the enormous expectations exit of The Town, were abundantly satisfied, but with Argo, last and impressive effort, the actor and director Ben Affleck has produced the definitive confirmation of his undoubted talent.
On 4 November 1979, when the Iranian revolution reached its climax, a group of militants entered in the Embassy USA in Tehran and takes 52 hostages. Amid the chaos, six Americans manage to escape and take refuge in the house of the Ambassador of Canada. Knowing full well that it is only a matter of time before the six vangano traced and probably killed, Tony Mendez, a CIA specialist in equities infiltration, sets up a risky plan to make them flee the country. A plan so far-fetched that could only happen in the movies.
The film subjects the viewer to continue to power surges. Excited by the first few sequences in which we witness the uprising in Tehran and the subsequent escape of the six, to the scenes of Hollywood than ever hilarious and ironic where two splendid John Goodman and Alan Arkin will “lead” the golden world of the dream factory, to return moments heart-pounding during rescue operations, all calibrated with wisdom and good taste never exceeded both the pietism that in laughter.
