Fifth about The Seventh


Argo: efficient thriller that, on the surface, is a great followup to the muscular film-making seen before by Affleck; notably, its great mix of humor and tension. However, this one surpasses a label of mere entertainment with the layers presented: first, a great comment on sticking one’s hands where they are not supposed to go; most importantly, by being meta-linguistic and talking about the power of a good story. A good story needs a good delivery to be sold, and this is showed in spades both in and by this movie.
