Film Brief: The Imitation Game

The Imitation Game - posterQuite good, old chap.

With a general knowledge — or so I thought — of Britain’s efforts at WWII codebreaking, and my taste for UK period pieces sated by The Theory of Everything, I had no desire to see The Imitation Game.  The steady drumbeat of the Tomatometer convinced me otherwise.

Marketing of this film points toward a simplistic anecdote about one part of the British war effort, but this is more an account of the complex man who drove it.  As such, layers and an arc of story likely bring The Imitation Game into the ever-tightening Top Ten of the year.  8/10
