In this minisode, Tyler and Josh kick off their “Best of Pictures” series with a discussion of Ben Affleck’s Argo.
Hey guys, great podcast.
I’m so in the middle about Argo that I spend a lot of time defending it against detractors and critiquing it to fans (which probably also says a lot about ME).
One place where the Hollywood scenes seemed to be groping towards meaning, almost successfully, was during the table read. It seemed like there were worthwhile things floating around there about how escapism interacts with harsh realities. And of course, the movie as a whole does that since the proto-hostages use a science fiction film to escape the troubles of the middle east, which a lot Americans of the time also did but less literally.
But yeah, many interesting elements that only fitfully become anything bigger. Not even an arguable Best Picture for me.
Looking very forward to hearing this podcast! I reviewed this on LTBM so I can’t wait to see how similar/different our opinions on the movie and the Christian perspective are.
