Ah, the Argo-bashing. Yeah, it was a bad rehash of the story that -- until now -- was called the Canadian Caper. It was our story. But it's not that we didn't have 32 years to make our own decent movie. Someone could have gotten a grant to write a solid, interesting book that told the whole story. Affleck clued in to the story when he read a piece about the Argo ruse in Wired magazine. The Walrus and Maclean's somehow lost track of this great Canadian moment. So, if it was really a Canadian Caper, Canadians didn't give much of a damn about it.
