There seems to be talk that Ben Affleck's movie about hostages in Iran in 1979-80, Argo, will win the Best Picture Oscar (even though Ben didn't get a Best Director nod).
I thought Argo was fine as a satisfactory example of the Married Couple's Date Movie, which has become rare. But as Best Picture?
Noah Millman supplies the definitive Argo takedown.
