The film is definitely bias- but is still fairly accurate. It is bias because the film involved a lot of Canadian aid, but it is downplayed a lot in the movie. This is because the Americans want to take credit for the entire thing. However this is accurate in the way that the CIA worked to do things like remove the hostages in secret. The CIA had to fool the whole world that this wasn’t actually happening- just so they could remove the hostages without the Iranians noticing. The filmmakers stretched a lot of the story to emphasize the involvement in the US and dim down the involvement of Canada. It also works to show the intelligence and work of the CIA.
For the negative review of the film, I think the author had this viewpoint because he sees the ineffective ways we are repeating history in that the government is still fighting wars that shouldn’t be our fight and we are getting stuck in the middle of it. I agree that the movie Argo could be seen as a parallel between today and history, but I liked the movie a lot more than I disliked it. For the positive review, the author saw the movie as a great way to portray an important event in our time period, and it was a well put together movie that released the truth of a lot of our history.
