OK, with a review like this now I HAVE to see Argo. The sheer bitterness that Ben Affleck had the unmitigated gall to make an ‘undeniably rousing, but deeply irresponsible,’ ‘first-rate thriller’ that ALSO happens to contradict antiwar progressive cant on Iran is a wondrous thing to behold. I must pre-order this movie*, solely because a purchase will be more coals on the head of Iranian apologists than a mere rental would be.
Ah yes, Argo must be dismissed because it is insufficiently pro-Iran, or some such. slantmagazine.com/film/review/ar…

*Well… Wish Listed, at least. You know how that goes.
