  • What to watch: 'Argo'
    Ever since Mendez’s mission was declassified in 1997, it’s evolved into a Beltway legend just itching for a visionary filmmaker like Ben Affleck to scratch. And, boy, does he satisfy that urge by molding “Argo,” his third directorial effort, into a rousing comedic thriller in which hubris and resourcefulness meld into one. It seizes you from the start, opening with a brief, informative history lesson for the young’uns, and continues to grip you, right up until the final five minutes, when Affleck unnecessarily adds about six-too-many endings, tying up loose ends best left undone.
