Better Than Argo? End of Watch

More fact-based than Argo
By the way, know a 2012 movie better than "Argo" (besides "Silver Linings Playbook")?  Check out "End of Watch" , a pragmatic tale of two beat cops working South Central Los Angeles.  Shot from a realistic point-of-view (lots of hand-held camera action) it shows the two police pals live life and fight drug cartels in LA's finest slums. Very well done and innovative from a not-in-your face perspective. 

Much better than Argo - and probably a heck bit more factual.  Even Roger Ebert had it fourth on his end-of-year best movie list for 2012 after that Lincoln, Life of Pi and that aforementioned Affleck fantasy movie.
