Putting all the impression into one sentence: Argo was a flawless historical film with tight-knit screen play and impressive cinematography. Although most viewers probably knew how the story was going to end in the end (Since it was based on a real historical event), the director Ben Affleck did such a great job on sending the viewers into the world of late 1970s and put them right in the middle of the tension of Iranian revolution.
I've been always interested in Ben Affleck's work since 'the Town' and this film allowed me to see his potential to bring fresh perspective on real life events- finally something beyond of Boston or street crime. His idea beneath the Iranian embassy hostage crisis, Carter administration, and big-shot hollywood have came visually vivid and thought intriguing manner.
Argo was an excellent film overall. I won't be surprise if this movie gets nominated for the upcoming 85th Academy Award. "Argo Fu** Yourself"- I will never forget this quote from the movie.
