It takes some weird alignment of the stars to produce a best picture Oscar-winner that is also No. 1 on my annual Top 10, but Ben Affleck’s “Argo” was that flick. There’s been a bit of a critical backlash against this film, as if entertaining people were a crime, but Affleck’s tale of hostage-taking and CIA exfiltration in the revolutionary Iran of 1979 is milked for so much suspense, I can’t imagine even Alfred Hitchcock doing it any better.
