The Next Best Picture Podcast – “The Imitation Game”

By Matt Neglia 

The 2014 retrospective continues this week with Morten Tyldum’s “The Imitation Game” starring Benedict Cumberbatch & Keira Knightley. Based on the life of Alan Turing, this movie was critically acclaimed upon its release, receiving 8 Oscar nominations and one win for Best Adapted Screenplay. However, the years have not been kind to the historically inaccurate biopic. Tune in below to find out why. Joining me for this intense podcast review I have Nicole AckmanDan BayerJosh Parham, Ryan C. Showers & Patreon guest Roxanne Danis. Also be sure to check out our other 2014 reviews of “Selma,” “Ida,” “Foxcatcher,” “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” “Wild“, “Inherent Vice” & “Whiplash.”
