"Argo' (true events) a political hostage crisis thriller (in 1979 Iranian crisis) is a rare intelligent blend of drama and humor, where a fake movie production is used to rescue 6 Americans
A praiseworthy, fascinating and precise made film. It works on all levels. Ben Affleck has arrived as a complete director. And he's not too bad directing himself in the lead part.
The fake movie plot is so increditable bizarre how is it conceivable. It held my interest from the opening reel until the credits. And hang around for the credits.

Spoiler: "Argo" is the name of the fake film and it took 18 years before Prez Clinton declassified the CIA operations
