What with the period setting, the British pedigree, the real-life subject, the literary source and, most of all, the Weinsteins behind it, most reviewers at Telluride note the Oscar potential of Morten Tyldum's The Imitation Game, despite their generally lukewarm reponses to the film. With all this modest praise, it's somewhat unlikely that the film hits as hard as Bob and Harvey would like it to, but don't start doubting their ability just yet! Benedict Cumberbatch receives raves, however, as expected. Here are reviews from Rodrigo Perez at The Playlist, Scott Foundas at Variety, Gregory Ellwood at In Contention, Todd McCarthy at The Hollywood Reporter and Michael Nordine at IndieWire.
