Gone Baby Gone and The Town proved Ben Affleck is an excellent director. Argo (A+) proves he’s a masterful one with a politically-minded action potboiler set during the Iran Hostage Crisis. It’s authentic in all the details of its declassified true story, riveting and even sometimes funny as an intelligence officer mounts a very improbable mission using a touch of Hollywood magic.
