2014 - THE IMITATION GAME, is an imitation of better films.

I was completely unimpressed with The Imitation Game a film that apparently plays fast and very loose with the facts of closeted gay professor Alan Turing and his role in breaking the German Enigma code machine during World War  II.

The film stars British actor flavor of the month Benedict Cumberbatch as the very twitchy Turing and Keira Knightly because as they say there's always has to be a woman in the movies.

Every liberal in the United States is whining about about the authenticity of the story in American Sniper.  I would say this film really has fact baked factual pseudo biographies beat with ridiculous spy plots and overblown dramatic scenes of code breaking that probably couldn't possibly have occured they way it's presented in this film.

If you are looking for a good film about Alan Turing and the Engima project you could probably wait for PBS to repeat Decoding Nazi Secrets which PBS will probably run ad naseum now that The Imitation Game is a success.

114 minutes
