Argo is Not a Liberal Film
I'm sure Ben is a gushing liberal like nearly everyone else in Hollywood but it doesn't come through in Argo, which is one of the reasons I hoped it would win. The movie is pretty skeptical of politics. It's about a CIA agent using his guts, brains and talent to assemble a solution from the ground up in a way that the political appointees could never have envisioned or pulled off. If that's a liberal message, I missed a memo.
