The Imitation Game (2014)

This was no game. The film was about beating the Nazi’s Enigma code in World War II. I thought the film had some exciting moments and then again it trudged into some of Turings personal life problems which didn’t feel necessary for the general plot of the film. It felt thrown in there to make some sort of societal point. Other than that one problem with the film, I found it to be quite fascinating. Benedict Cumberbatch had a great performance even though he was basically being Sherlock again and the supporting cast also did a great job. So far this is the second best Oscar nominated film I’ve seen this season, just behind American Sniper.

89/100

  1. I really liked this film because they did not try to tell his entire life story. They focused on the breaking of the enigma code and the two minor elements. I am annoyed by most biopics because they tend to be episodic and lack narrative structure. The Imitation Game avoided this pitfall by selecting only three moments in his life on which to focus.
