This book offers an enigmatic (ahem, pun intended) look at. Benedict Cumberbatch and the rest of the cast are excellent in their roles with the material they are given (hence two stars rather than one) but that cannot save what is ultimately a very disappointing film. This is well-made and well-acted film, with an important message. Given the chatty nature of the rest of the book, I suspect this was a stylistic choice rather an an editorial one. Goodreads Members Suggest: 32 ‘Vacation’ Reads. External Reviews But I was quite impressed. The Imitation Game is quite complicated. Consider me satisfied. In 1936 Germans changed the design, and Polish answered with Rejewsky bomb, machine with 6 enigma connected together,breaking new daily code in 2 hours.Another German changes required building 54 different machine designs, and Poland didn't have enough money so they asked allies to help.July 1939 Uk and French representatives visited Warsaw and got all documentation how to break ENIGMA.After beginning of the war, polish encoders moved to Paris, and British started Bletchley Park operation. After careful consideration, I am afraid to announce this film is overrated. There is no way that Turing would have been in a position to decide not to save the convoy (or even know that there was one to save). This is an example of the film's unreasonable twisting of facts in order to give the plot and conclusion this type of film needed. He concentrated on cryptanalysis of the Enigma with Dilly Knox, a senior GC&CS codebreaker. As the film announces at the start, it based on a true story. Today, Alan Turing is considered the father of theoretical computer science and artificial intelligence. Hello Best Picture frontrunner. En savoir plus. From September 1938, Turing had been working part-time with the Government Code and Cypher School (GC&CS), the British codebreaking organization. The mathematician, born on June 23, 1912, was a brilliant World War II codebreaker and parlayed that insight into theorizing and creating the first stored-memory computers. So, when I got home, I did a little online research. This success was a result of efforts by three Polish cryptologists, Marian Rejewski, Jerzy Różycki and Henryk Zygalski, working for Polish military intelligence. That's not to say that it's necessarily overly dry and hard to connect to, this biopic of the extraordinary and tragic mathematician and inventor of the digital computer, Alan Turing, played by Benedict Cumberbatch, is emotionally engaging and utterly endearing. Metacritic Reviews. It's mostly fiction. It's such a tragedy really, to be damned because of homosexuality. For a film that boasts that it is "based on a true story", it is a travesty to portray such a well- documented persons' life and the events related to this movie so inaccurately. And let me tell you something: this did not disappoint me at all! Remember, an even more advanced, valve-based machine for breaking codes was developed with little participation from Turing by a working class GPO man - Tommy Flowers, who used his own money to finance it. The Imitation Game follows one of the greatest minds, Alan Turing, who encrypted Enigma and was the prominent mind behind modern computing altogether. | Although there were a couple of Turing's ideas I had trouble wrapping my head around, I never felt lost within the story itself. Given the chatty nature of the rest of the book, I suspect this was a stylistic choice rather an an editorial one. By the start of the war, the Poles led by Marian Rejewski had been breaking Enigma for over six years and built the first machine, called a "bomba" in 1938. I've worked in news agencies and golf courses in the Chicagoland area, nuclear reactors in the U.S. and Japan, and libraries in Michigan. See 1 question about The Imitation Game…. It is a shame this movie is a stack of lies.First time polish broke enigma it was in 1932, 1933 they created first working example of Enigma, and first anti-enigma device, narrowing settings combination to 105 456. Start by marking “The Imitation Game” as Want to Read: Error rating book. Didn't understand the point of the interview set-up, and it felt like I had to fill in too many story-related blanks on my own. Alan Turing, Mathematician, Logician, Wartime Codebreaker and father of Computer Science. Truly excellent film and definitely Ocsar worthy material for both the film and the actors. English man only can have tea. Dilly Knox was one of the great cryptoanalysts of the XXth century. The Imitation Game isn't bad per se, but the structure is such a mess. He participated during WWI in the decyphering of the Zimmermann telegram, and during WWII in the breaking of the Enigma encoding machines. Unfortunately, this Officer of the British Empire was persecuted by the British government of the. I had not seen the movie, but I thought this was a little-known piece of history that I should learn about. The plot is simple. Ottaviani uses voice supremely well, and Purvis' art is colorful and engaging. Step forward the secret decoding establishment at Bletchley Park, where expert mathematicians and linguists are recruited to try and break the famous codes sent via the German Enigma machines. Find more of my bookish shenanigans in my natural habitat! The Entscheidungs Problem is a fascinating one to be sure! A great hero in the fight against prejudice. This was a method which had been invented by Dillwin (Dilly) Knox, one of the few cryptographic experts of World War One, who had originally headed the attack on the German enigma. Jim Ottaviani writes books that I love, even if the math's way above my head. Turing's approach was more general, using crib-based decryption for which he produced the functional specification of the bombe (an improvement of the Polish Bomba). The mathematician, born on June 23, 1912, was a brilliant World War II codebreaker and parlayed that insight into theorizing and creating the first stored-memory computers. http://www.tor.com/stories/2014/06/the-imitation-game-jim-ottaviani-leland-purvis. The mathematical content is dealt with well, and the emotional decline towards the end is very sensitively written. At first I gave it an 8, then I moved it down to 4 when I found out how historically inaccurate it is. I remember the same feeling reading. I was down in Melbourne over the Easter weekend for the International Comedy Festival (good times) and I visited the large Dymocks on Collins St. Not too bad of a store. He concentrated on cryptanalysis of the Enigma with Dilly Knox, a senior GC&CS codebreaker. Stupid and not telling the real truth who really brake Enigma machine. Concentrez-vous sur votre activité. How could such an interesting story be presented in such a boring manner? June 2014 Also according to some posts on internet Alan personality was also altered. There is something appropriately mechanical about The Imitation Game. There are three main sections: pre-war, Turing's war work, then post war. I didn't ask for any personal political insights, I didn't want pay for that. I read an earlier version of this book when it was available online. Hope his story is not overlooked just because he was straightforwardly normal! The Polish method relied on an insecure indicator procedure that the Germans were likely to change, which they did in May 1940. Refresh and try again. And step forward one Alan Turing of Cambridge University, resident if gay genius played by Benedict Cumberbatch. Turing wasn't in charge either, he didn't come up with ideas of using crosswords to find recruits and he wasn't alone in writing to Churchill; several of them signed the letter. Perhaps the other problem is that I've seen the movie and this felt so thin compared to that. With a slick exquisite script and an eclectic ensemble strong enough to deliver, it's an accessible film that although may feel familiar, is thoroughly refreshing, bringing laughter, tears and thrills. I don't read graphic novels very often, but I really enjoyed my reading experience with The Imitation Game. Or I'm reading. The screenplay is also riddled with anachronisms, which just add to the sense of "Oh this is ridiculous" throughout the film. In a way it felt weird how everyone seemed to be OK with Alan's sexual orientation. Structurally Ottaviani highlighted the happenings that weren't the core for the story, but more like something that just happened without any meaning. This is a good enough movie, but skirts around the true story in order to make a clunky point about a genius hounded to death for his homosexuality. I just like to have more written information when I read a book. Brilliant adaptation of the story of Bletchley Park and the cryptanalysis team, ran by Alan Turing, that cracked the code of the German Enigma Machine during World War II. Ottaviani uses voice supremely well, and Purvis' art is colorful and engaging. Perhaps the other problem is that I've seen the movie and this felt so thin compared to that. Absolutely fascinating read about a man I knew next to nothing about. Great story, but I thought the execution could have been smoother, and the entire narrative framed better. Cumberbatch played Alan Turing well, but I felt he was given almost same persona as he plays in Sherlock.
