Watch Argo - Alternative Versions.
This is a great movie. The story, acting, pacing, editing, etc. was
just fantastic. Affleck's directing was solid, and the suspense will
keep you entertained right through to the last seconds. I loved it.
It did have one irritating thing, though, kind of a big one. It pointed
most of the accolades to Affleck's character and the CIA. This really
was not true. It was Ken Taylor and the Canadians who really pulled
'the Canadian Caper' off so successfully.
"When Taylor heard a few years ago that Mendez had sold movie rights to
his book (which, to be fair, is much more generous than the movie about
Canada's role), "I said, 'Well, that's going to be
interesting.'...."The movie's fun, it's thrilling, it's pertinent, it's
timely," he said. "But look, Canada was not merely standing around
watching events take place. The CIA was a junior partner."
"The old postscript sent the message that, for political reasons,
Canada took the credit. A sarcastic kicker noted that Taylor received
112 citations. The clear implication was that he did not deserve
them."(Sept/Oct., 2012, thestar.com)".
So the USA does another revision on history here. I believe 'Argo' goes
this far. Yes, it's based on a true story - the movie does it's best to
allude that it sticks to technical accuracy. And it really does, in
some ways. Historical pictures of flag burners, rioters, gate climbers,
etc.. up against Argo film stills run by during the credits make it
seem that the facts were adhered to down to the tiniest detail. In
reality, it wasn't Tony Mendez or the CIA who were responsible for the
success of this operation; actually they were barely there.
Since the movie premiered, Ben Affleck has added emphasis on the movie
postscripts since then that gives kudos to the Canadians' role. This
was after Ken Taylor politely complained, as a Canadian would tactfully
do. But Affleck did this only after pressure from Taylor himself.
I can understand the need to spice up events to make them as exciting
and entertaining as possible, don't get me wrong. But this film needs
to let the audience know that more explicitly than it does, even after
the changed postscripts.
Still, a really entertaining and riveting film, very well done, and
easily worth seeing. As a matter of fact, don't miss it.
