– The extraordinary performance of Benedict Cumberbatch in the role of Alan Turing -ripe, balanced and true- that establishes the British actor as one of the best of his generation.
– I agree that is a very academic biopic of Alan Turing, with all that come along -effort to humanize a disturbed genius, focus on romance, simplification of the real story and post-filmic atonement- but that does not necessarily means that it is not one of the most interesting films of the year.
– Although I am not very fond of Keira Knightley, I must admit that I was intrigued by her performance.
– The lunch dialogue between Alan and the team, that reveals simultaneously the great mathematician’s misconceived brilliance and complete lack of affability.
– The daunting score of Alexandre Desplat that prolongs the agony of the viewer and brings to life the essence of the era.
