“Argo” Cinema Review

Cinema: Sunset Place, South Miami, FL

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1024648/

Fascinating, if somewhat complicated, retelling of the escape from 1979 Tehran by six American workers of the U.S. embassy who holed up in the residence of the Canadian Ambassador. If you are a history buff and lived through this secret (until successful) episode, you will find it riveting.

Affleck is fine and John Goodman turns in another great character turn. Goodman’s droll comments on Hollywood are as pertinent today as they were 33 years ago.
