Argo: the true story of how the CIA used science fiction as a cover
When it comes to rating films on my Netflix account, I don't throw five stars out lightly. One of those rare movies was Gone Baby Gone, directed by Ben Affleck and based on the superb detective series by Dennis Lehane. Say what you will about Affleck's acting, but as a director I consider him a master. Here's the trailer for his latest film, Argo:
The movie will star Affleck himself, Bryan Cranston, John Goodman, and Alan Arkin. Casts rarely get better than this. It opens this Friday.
So far it reminds me of a movie about a similar sting involving the FBI called The Last Shot.
