Argo | ★★★★★★★★

Always hard to sort out fact and fiction from movies based on actual events. I think that was one of the tensions I felt when Argo started with an indictment of America's involvement with the Shah of Iran and the events of the late 70s when he was overthrown and a new leader was put in place.

Once I got past that I found a way to sit back and enjoy this retelling of the rescue of six Americans from Iran. I thought that the directing was great, Ben Affleck's performance good and the plot was suspenseful. There were several twists in the story that kept me interested and on the edge of my seat.

I am not sure that I see it as Oscar worthy but think that it will make it into the company of the top ten 2012 flicks. On a scale of ten, I give it ★★★★★★★★.
