It's got horses in it, it's a Western.

Argo - 7/10.
To quote someone quoting someone else, and thereby distorting its meaning, I'm sure: when did making a competent movie qualify you for the highest reaches of art? I like Affleck and I mean brother no disrespect, but this is a fine thriller and that's all. I'd have liked it better if the final escape actually turned into the sci-fi film they were trying to make, thereby making some sort of statement about the exaggeration of art in telling a story, which it's already doing. Huzzah!
