Have you seen the movie Argo? I saw it the weekend before last and loved it. I have to say, I knew embarrassingly little about the Iranian hostage crisis in the late '70s and early '80s, and specifically the Argo operation, so not only was this movie gripping (seriously—it's fast-paced and jittery and suspenseful; the protest scenes at the very beginning are pretty terrifying), it was also educational. And even though I knew how it ended, I was completely engaged the entire way through. Well done, Ben Affleck (who, by the way, I find rather attractive with the beard and shaggy hair).
