TV Spot: Argo

I like Ben Affleck. He wasn’t always a popular guy to like but I’ve stuck with him through the ups and downs over the course of his career and he seems to have really hit his stride with his efforts as a director. Argo is beginning promotional efforts and the first TV spot, that I’ve seen, has hit the web.

I like this, or at least what we’ve seen thus far. I’ve already been aware of the plot and premise and just didn’t allow myself to further invest in the project until I’d seen some footage. Hell, for all I know “The Town” coulda been a fluke. This looks credible, and decent. It’s a grounded project, which is probably best for him right now, and has an old school sense of storytelling. I could be reading too much into this but that’s more credit to this TV spot… or I’m just a sucker for manly beards and/or movies that involve John Goodman. What did you think?

One thought on “TV Spot: Argo

  1. I’m  sure this is a great movie, about a true story.  In 1979 6 americans from the embassy did get to the canadian embassy, and were eventuall evacuated back to the US.  I’m sure this movie tells the story accuratly. But does anyone remember the story about H Ross Perot getting 2 of his employees out of Iran at the same time.  The story was told in a book by Ken Folett, and then made into a movie “Where Eagles Fly”.   The mission.   was carried out by employees of Perot, who had no training in this sort of operation.  They were ordinary people who worked in offices, but carried out a daring rescue operation under the direction of a retired special forces Colonel.  Perot spent millions to get his people out of Iran, even buying a jet airliner to fly them out, once they had crossed the border out of Iran.This movie should get some publicity, along with Argo , as a heroic rescue mission carried out my non government, and non military orddinary people..  .
