The Imitation Game

Post by Dunn » Thu Feb 12, 2015 1:46 am

Stars Benedict Bandersnatch as Alan Turing. Film details Turing's escapades as in WW2 Britain as a cryptographer in charge of cracking the Nazi Enigma code. It has Kiera Knightly, but unfortunately she stays clothed. Acting is pretty damn superb. Bandersnatch is definitely up to the task of some serious acting.

Check it out fuckers.

Turing was as much a genius as Einstein. What a waste what the Brits did to him.

Is this movie about this gayness of this dude or that actual cracking of this code. What is the primary conflict?

The code is the primary obstacle/focus. His sexual orientation is there and comes more into play at the end.

Well, in his real life, he was convicted of an "obscene act", ie being gay, and was forced to go on government prescribed hormone therapy (high dose estrogen). He grew sizeable breasts and a year later, committed suicide, although some think it might have been an accidental lab accident (ingestion of cyanide or accidental inhalation, was never determined).

It's about the lies Turing is living professionally and personally, their cost, and who he is. Man? Machine? Homo? Patriot? Criminal? Machine? You get your answer in the closing scene of him dry-humping a mockup of an Atari 2600.

Saw it last night, then when I got home I turned on HBO and Her was on. Nice segue.

I want to know the same thing. They like to sell movies as "suspense!" when they know it's a shitty biopic about gayness but that won't get butts in the seats so they mislead you. Then you wind up sitting there watching a gay porno wondering when the nazi's are going to show up and after awhile, you figure, fuck it, they ain't showing up, so you just keep on rubbing your dick until you can't see straight.
"Know that! & Know it deep you fucking loser!"
