There's nothing like hearing a harrowing tale from the people who lived it.
For people with a limited understanding of the Iranian Revolution, Our Man In Tehran offers an easily digestible history lesson.
Informative but tedious ... for anyone who watched Argo and then wished to hear a ditzy, history-obsessed uncle ramble about the real-life political stakes of the 1979 Iranian hostage crisis.
This polished, comprehensive-feeling film makes clear how much of the work was done by our neighbors to the north.
Sometimes, the truth can be more entertaining than fiction.
Through it all, Weinstein, the veteran, and Drew Taylor, making his directorial debut, weave an intelligent, complex and tension-filled story that breathes life into historical events that are fast fading from our collective memory.
Taylor and Weinstein give the audience a detailed understanding of the rituals of diplomacy and the secret inner workings of the intelligence services.
The story's a good one (already familiar if you saw Argo), and it's interesting to see the real-life versions of characters portrayed by Ben Affleck, etc.
Luxuriating in the sort of complexity that streamlined films have a difficult time fitting into the confines of a cathartic narrative, Our Man in Tehran is a worthwhile complementary piece to Argo.
...the biggest problem of Our Man in Tehran is also what ultimately befalls Argo.
This fascinating and fast-paced documentary about the Iran hostage crisis' Canadian Caper, fictionalized in Argo, is an espionage thriller in itself.
Never is there an Iranian perspective on the proceedings, giving the documentary the jingoistic bent its title implies.
