Yes, this is up to date, I just saw the movie today, and later tonight, this movie won best director and best drama at the golden globes 2013. To be honest, I had to watch one of the drama in competition, chose this one, and when I got out, I asked myself if I didn't go see the worse of the nominated movies. Now I am questioning either the selection or the final choice. But since I haven't yet seen the others, I don't have the answer... Never mind, to be more moderated, I felt it was an interesting development of a story, with a very original script, the use of Hollywood as a cover to free Americans from Iran was a great joke inside a very serious affair. The second half of the movie, knowing the outcome in advance was a bit painful. It was using every way to stress you out, and so nationalistic it made me a bit dizzy. The end got an interesting twist to it, because of course everything is to remain secret, so no big emotional coming back for a hero, just an ironic shut off. Okay, the movie was quite good. I just wonder if this is to become the best movie of 2012... See at the Oscars...
