Ben Affleck Takes Heat For Artistic Liberties Taken In ‘Argo’

Ben Affleck won big with “Argo” taking home top prizes at the Oscars. Best Picture, Best Adapted Screen Play, and Best Film Editing, but some people aren’t too happy with him. Particularly New Zealanders and Iranians who think that references to their countries involvement in the film were false or unfair. Though the movie has done well in New Zealand, grossing over 1 Million dollars to date, some New Zealanders have taken offense to one quote in reference to their help or lack thereof to save the group of americans in Iran. In the scene a CIA agent is asking his superior what happend to a group of Americans when the US embassy was attacked in Iran, to which his superior replied, “The six of them went out a back exit, Brits turned them away. Kiwis turned them away. Canadians took them in.” Though it has been documented that New Zealanders did indeed help in the situation the movie was written with a dramatic effect. Even the thrilling tarmac chase scene at the end is a jazzed up version of the actual events, and the Iranians are upset at their depiction in the film. It is however important that we remember, though this is based on a true story, it is still cinema and should be judged only as such. It is not a literal account of events, but a Multi Million dollar grossing movie, and it wasn’t the only one of 2012’s biggest movies that used artistic liberties…

Malcolm X’s Grandson Arrested By The FBI !?!?

Malcolm X, historical figure of the “by any means necessary” slogan has placed more than an impression on his grandchild, Malcolm Shabazz. Malcolm a Muslim activist was on his way to Tehran, Iran before FBI officials arrested him. It’s said that he was checking into Iran to go to the third annual Hollywoodism International Conference. The HIC is a group of filmmakers, activists and scholars from around the world that discuss issues facing world cinema and it being used as a vehicle for nationalistic propaganda. Sounds like a Malcolm X. Coincidence that a day and some change after Lifetime premiere’s “Betty & Coretta” that this happens? I think NOT. The FBI has yet to release any information on why Malcolm was arrested or where they’ve placed him. They’ve been watching him. Drop down bottom for more on Malcolm Shabazz.
