The aim of a good thriller was never clear to me until now – it should make you aware of your own heartbeat. While not an action film per se, “Argo” practically shakes your seat. It commands your attention. It trades the self-important barking of most CIA-thrillers for quietly effective moments and gives up predictable action setpieces in favor of striking period piece intricacies. It’s so sleek and well-made that you’ll wish you could park it in your driveway and show it off to your neighbors. Congratulations, Mr. Affleck. You’ve arrived. Again. Please stay awhile.
Rating: ★★★★ 1/2 out of ★★★★★ (Excellent)
