Movie Moles Jan and Frann review Argo

Movie moles Jan Haaken and Frann Michel discuss the new film Argo, about the CIA's "exfiltration" of six US embassy workers hidden in Tehran by Canadian diplomats during the Iranian hostage crisis. Although the popular movie offers some valuable historical information critical of the CIA and US policy, the tone of the film created by its departures from fact and adherence to genre conventions ultimately leads viewers to align emotionally with nationalist and individualist values.
