    Default Iran angry because of OSCAR winner "Argo".

    http://www.examiner.com/article/iran...film-the-works

    Iran is planning a response to "Argo." Ben Affleck's "baby" has gotten tons of attention this year and after winning "Best Picture" at the 2013 Academy Awards, Iran has more fuel in the tank to help them tell their side of the story. On Feb. 25, The Bayou Buzz reported that filmmakers in Iran plan to release their own film about the 1979 hostage crisis. The story, they say, will be told from their point of view.

    "Iranian state media criticize the movie as 'replete with historical inaccuracies and distortions.' Iran's Art Bureau says it will fund its own film about the handing over of 20 U.S. hostages," Bayou Buzz reports.

    Iran's response to "Argo" is not surprising, given the fact that the film doesn't paint the country (and its people) in the prettiest of pictures. Many people are curious to see how the films differ and whether Iran's take on what happened in '79 completes, contradicts, or compliments the Oscar-winning film produced by Affleck, George Clooney, and Grant Heslov.

    News of Iran's plans to make their own film broke in January. Now that "Argo" has proved to be such a huge success here in The States, filmmakers in Iran are pushing forward with their plans. They have said that their people have been depicted as "overemotional, irrational, insane, and diabolical" while the US and its CIA is -- per usual -- the "hero." It is unknown if that perception will change altogether, but the new film will supposedly be more "realistic."

    Will the Iranian response to "Argo" be as popular as the "original"? Probably not. However it has a good chance of doing well because people are curious to compare.

    Fuck em'. The fact that there were hostages in the first place tells me all I need to know about Iran.

    Canada should be pissed at that piece of fiction more than Iran.

    just saw Argo the other day and I don't know why Canada would be warped about it


    it clearly depicted the Canadian ambassador taking in 6 "houseguests" ..hiding them at great personal danger despite the terrible scene out in the streets, and cooperating with the us agent to get them out with Canadian issued passports (not to mention the cost of the diplomatic relationship between Canada and Iran)


    I also clearly remember back in the day Canada basking in the glory of their "single handed" rescue, protection and repatriation of these houseguests


    so I guess if you put the fiction of 1980 against the fiction of 2013 you get a wash


    I do wish however that when a story is presented to the public as a "true story" that ethics would require them to not take license with the facts

    if they want to do something "based on a true story" then fictionalize the whole darn thing ...don't cherry pick the truth

    Donno what Carter's doing right, he's seems in much better shape than Reagan, the Bushes or Clinton. Wonder what kind of diet he's on. The way he talks is irritating, though.

    A movie should be made of the failures of the Carter's administration to release the OTHER hostages, as well as the Reagan camp secret negotiations to delay their release until after the election.

    So Iran is gonna make their own film, huh? They ought to start by getting the number right.....it was 50 hostages, not 20......I fail to understand why anyone would give a shit about Iran's "hurt feelings" in the first place.....
