The promotional materials have done a great job of spelling out the framework of Ben Affleck’s “Argo”.
It’s a historical thriller, set during the Iran Hostage Crisis. Six individuals managed to escape the US Embassy as it was being stormed by Iranians (during the hostage crisis of 1979), and now need help to get out of the country.
What the marketing can’t convey though, is the pervasive atmosphere of tension that director Ben Affleck manages to create. “Argo” is an intense and occasionally humorous docudrama that adds to Affleck’s burgeoning streak of excellent projects.

“Dazed and Confused”
The last day of school.
The first party of the summer.
A sprawling cast of teen actors and a young director creating an epic, authentic, remarkable movie surrounding a youthful rite of passage.
The high school kegger.

Making its debut tonight on HBO is Ben Affleck’s second directorial effort, “The Town”.
“The Town” is an amazing heist film that stars Affleck, Jeremy Renner, Rebecca Hall, Jon Hamm and Pete Postlethwaite. It earned Renner an Oscar Nomination for Best Supporting Actor, and it currently holds a 94% Tomatometer score on Rotten Tomatoes.
I like it a lot myself.
