FleshEatingZipper says: "With Gone Baby Gone, writer/director/producer/actor Ben Affleck showed that he could stand behind the camera and direct a competent film. With The Town, he showed that his first feature wasn’t a fluke, that he was actually a good director. With Argo, Ben Affleck comfortably joins the ranks of America’s best living filmmakers and easily outpaces any other actor/director currently working in Hollywood. Forget Robert Redford, George Clooney, or Clint Eastwood. Based on his first three movies now, Ben Affleck has been remarkably more consistent at turning in great movies than any other actor/director this side of Cassavetes. Argo is one of the best all around pictures of the year, benefiting from a fantastic script, brilliant performances, and sure handed direction."
