I am actually very excited about this movie. I am not ashamed to say that I have always been a fan of Ben Affleck. He always seemed grateful for his good fortune and he was never hesitant to make fun of himself. I am also one of the few people that love his interpretation of Daredevil.
He has already one an Oscar for writing. But I was only aware of his skills as a director until I saw The Town. That movie was so well done, it validated my admiration of Affleck.
This brings us to Argo. This movie could have easily been a comedy. Yes, it takes place during a very serious part of history, but the plot is so strange that I could see the temptation to point it towards the wacky. But it looks like Affleck has found a good balance between the funky and the finessed. We'll have to see.
Also good use of Aerosmith's Dream On.
