Argo is a MUST-WATCH. Ben Affleck does such a great job directing it and has sealed his fate as a director. Great shots crafted together. The film stays strong with realism, adds the necessary drama and doesn't stray far from the actual events that took place. There's a constant heightened sense of panic that comes from being threatened in a hostile 'alien land' throughout the film, and he crafted that beautifully into it.
