Argo (the movie)

Briefly, for those as yet ignorant; the Iranians kidnapped some American embassy employees some of whom escaped to the sanctuary of the Canadian embassy from whence they are rescued by the CIA, or some-such, by means of a fake film production unit, which subsequently smuggles the escapees out as part of their crew. Not very imaginative or plausible for starters.

When I saw this movie I thought to myself, “Oh well, another nail in the coffin of a dying Hollywood. A total waste of resources and my time”. Cinematography, script, continuity – slapdash mediocrity. There simply wasn’t a single redeeming feature, and the worst part of it all, was the ill-disguised attempt at fake reality television with a shaky camera and inane dialogue. So, I congratulated myself for once again being  caught for a sucker by American film making and got on with my life.


PS is this rant proof of the their effectiveness or what?

    Movies are about suspending belief, not expressing your disbelief! Movies based on true events always require belief not just to be suspended but hanged until dead.

    Of what?

    Where is Iran?

    What is Hollywood – and where is it?

    Life goes on! I carry on!
