Default Re: The Canadian View of The Movie "ARGO"


I guess its about how much butter you put on the toast.

Movie making will always be about a 'version' of the events ( even it claims to be based on a true story ). All history is a version really, after all.
Movies will also always be about the director's creative interpretation of the events ( not to mention box- office )

As an example, the nerve - jangling ride the hostages took through the markets of Tehran, did not actually happen but the director used this little bit of fiction to express the stress of the moment.

Having said this, the Canadian role in this whole episode was central, and crucial. And this is also just a movie, folks, where facts sometimes become play second fiddle to entertainment.
