  • Telluride Film Review: 'The Imitation Game'

    LOS ANGELES (Variety.com) - Nothing is too heavily encrypted in "The Imitation Game,", rendered in such unerringly tasteful, "Masterpiece Theatre"-ish fashion that every one of Turing's professional triumphs and personal tragedies arrives right on schedule and with nary a hair out of place. More than once during the accomplished (but not particularly distinctive) English-language debut for Norwegian director Morten Tyldum ("Headhunters"), you can catch the ghost of the late Richard Attenborough nodding approvingly over the decorous proceedings.
