TIFF 2014: The Imitation Game (2014)
My TIFF 2014 reviews continue to trickle through and today I’ve got something special, one of my most anticipated films of the year, “The Imitation Game.” Starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Keira Knightley, Matthew Goode, Mark Strong, and Rory Kinnear, “The Imitation Game” retells the unbelievable life-story of Alan Turing.

Awesome review! I’m so glad this is worth the price of admission. Can’t wait to see it, Joseph.
Thanks Cindy! Without question worth watching in the theatre, can’t wait to hear your thoughts on it.
Ooooh, excellent. . .eeeegggsellent. . . looking forward to reading this one (also, I’m jealous.)
Thanks a ton, Tom! Don’t be too jealous, comes out soon enough😉.
Great review as usual Joseph. There have been some sniffy reactions here in the UK, but personally I think it looks great.
Thanks! It has its ups and downs, but overall it’s a solid, well-performed gem
“his voice, pronged like a reverse trident, nestles under your skin and doesn’t pry loose.”
Nice turn of phrase!
Why thank you very much.
I’m very excited to see this one! Hopping over to the Katzenjammer right away…
Awesome! Thanks for taking the time.
Well, I’m sure you already know I want to see this because BENNY. Great review, Joseph. Sounds like a really fantastic film. And Keira Knightley sounds…not bad? She tends to drive me a little crazy. I’m hoping that’s not the case here. Lol.
Thanks Cara!! If Benny is the only reason you see this flick, you won’t be disappointed, he’s phenomenal! Fortunately the film is rather intriguing and captivating, and Knightley isn’t half-bad, looks as promising as she did when the first Pirates came out.
Great review! The actors are good. Cumberbatch gives a career best performance.
