Review of Argo, Oscar Winning 2012 Film Directed By Ben Affleck, Starring Ben Affleck, Alan Alda

Argo is a kind of film which allows one to breathe in every moment of the account as it builds and at the same time leaves you breathless with the blazing tension and excitement. There isn’t a moment of ‘Zero Dark Thirty’-like self-consciousness in their direction and cinematography and neither is Argo surfeit with dialogues like Lincoln subsequently – the film is purely two hours of rush not for a moment feels rushed. We deliberately chose to watch Argo after the ten other nominees for Perfect Picture as it would be easier for myself to decide whether or not it deserved the acclaim and accolades. Following watching Argo I understand why the film received – it has this winning formula that 2010? s Oscar-snubbed Social Network and Christopher Nolan’s ‘Inception’ had: it keeps you hooked every second every minute of its appropriate 2 hour runtime. You are never distracted, and not for a minute will you twiddle or purposelessly text on your silly cell-phones. دانلود قسمت 11 یازدهم سریال عاشقانه رایگان

Talking about cell-phones, Argo is a film where telephones play such an important motif because the film is established at the end of seventies, a time when cell-phones were still in its infancy. Actually in Argo’s case, life is at the stake of telephones and there’s a climatic, teeth-grinding moment that can cause you to feel two things: 1) “Wow, we’re so lucky we now have cell-phones these days! ” and 2) “Dang! You could get away with such products in those times! “. What products? Well, just pretending you are a Canadian taking pictures a ridiculous sci-fi film in Iran with the real purpose of saving six fugitives who also have to play along by fronting as the film’s folks in order to run away the nation (and ah, you each one is People in america by the way). Appears crazy right? 

This actually happened in 1979 when Tony Mendez, an American exfiltration expert rescued half a dozen American fugitives who privately encamped at the recognized residence of the Canadian Ambassador in Iran after escaping an invasion of the American Embassy by Iranian revolutionaries. Our bewhiskered hero (played by an usually clean-shaven Ben Affleck, who should sport this look in more movies for it suits him for serious subject-matter films) is referred to as to a conference where the other users seem to be unwelcoming towards him and yet can’t help but follow his idea, not finding any better-of-the-worst idea. Tony at first pitches a rather unviable plan but soon rejects it and in convert chooses the fake Artist film shooting plan after being inspired by a clip from Planet of the Apes, catching it within a conversation with his son. For executing this ‘Are You Serious! ‘ mission, he gets in touch with Oscar-winning makeup artist John Chambers and producer Lester Siegel who agree to produce, promote and a lot importantly (for this film) storyboard this movie. Tony poses as the film’s director to Artist so he can get easy sanction to go to Iran for filming, get permission from the Cultural department in Croatia to ‘shoot at locations’ and then call the film off and leave, taking along with him the six refugees who shall pretend to be the film’s crew, having with them fake Canadian passports handed by Mendez. To these six political refugees, Tony doesn’t reveal his true name until this individual consciously discloses his id to two of them to achieve their trust. In the event that Tony succeeds, it’s not simply USA, Canada and CIA who are celebrating, but also Hollywood which could make all of this happened, the best part being that Argo the movie actually never happened.

Some of the things that took place and maybe still happen on the globe delight us, and one field that stunned me comes later in Argo where Iranian children are being used to meticulously reassemble the disposed documents which would disclose the identities of the six American refugees. What didn’t surprise me much however was the benefits a ‘film’ related draw can give you at any place; just bringing up you come from the film-industry grants you some immunity or respite in USA, in Iran or any other place. Discover an interesting scene in the film where the quack crew is followed by a person in Iranian Social Affairs to location search at the bazaar and the latter asks false director, now played by one of the 6 refugees, whether the film was about a Canadian woman’s romance with Iran’s culture and its people. That’s precisely the sort of videos you see today which aim at sensitizing different cultures and breaking ethnic barriers; my point here being that Hollywood can really help make that happen. The climax is another moment where the character’s fake film experience really work for them, and it’s a treat to watch this kind of implausible thing actually working.
