This is a tribute to a SUPERB+++ British Drama that I happened to see on PBS's "Masterpiece - Contemporary" last night when most of the world was watching the Oscars. I used to..ADORE watching the Oscars, but the last decade or so.. - not so much. Besides, I think EVERYone knew that "Argo" would claim "Best Picture" and I'm STILL sooo sad and angry about this movie's portrayal of Canada's role that I REALLY did not want to watch the "Argo-Gang" receive their statues. Even former US President, Jimmy Carter, has voiced his dismay AND outrage at how overlooked and diminished Canada's part in that whole affair appears in "Argo"!! Or, as President Carter said; "Canada was 90% responsible for Saving The Day!!" Curious to think that Canadian, Victor Garber, agreed to play Ken Taylor in the film!! Which reminds me, Ken Taylor, the TRUE HERO of that looong-ago mess, doesn't like "Argo" either!!
I "get" that Hollywood is alll about making $$$ and/or that their films MUST grab viewers' attention if a single DIME is to be made. Still, there IS the 'little matter' of re-writing history, isn't there?? Besides, surely the REAL STORY was compelling and dramatic and terrifying and electric, etc., etc. WITHOUT the need for "Hollywood-embellishment"!!
Back to "Page 8" for a moment: if you should get the chance to see this EXTRAORDINARY film, DO!! It will keep you on the Proverbial "edge of your seat" as it 'dances' through the dark and distubring and murky world of "behind the news - behind the REAL stories" of modern day, international politics. The ultimate DEEEECENCY of "Page 8's" main character is a JOY to behold!! Besides, Ralph Fiennes - usually of Big Movie fame - plays the U.K.'s PM and/or WHO needs the Oscars, anyway?!
