The Imitation Game - Dir. Morten Tyldum

It’s a sad state of affairs when we have to rely on Americans to make our plucky “British prestige biopic” that will miraculously make it to the Oscars.

The Imitation Game is far too safe in its storytelling and never gets past the fact that we know that the Enigma code will be cracked. Despite this, the filmmakers insist on playing out the “race against time” story in full, without explaining in more detail how Turing’s machine worked.
