THE IMITATION GAME (Telluride Film Festival (TFF) Telluride Colorado USA 2014)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.5|5.0 Stars ìììì

The Imitation Game
magically transforms, what could have been a completely boring, information story, into a totally WOW! entertainment piece. The film—definitely worth your time and money—tells the story of Alan Turing (Benedict Cumberbatch), the man who saved millions of lives by breaking the Enigma code during WWII so that Great Britain could tell where German war forces were located at any given time. Some experts believe that Turing’s work ended the war two years early.
