The Imitation Game: Straight Up

The Independent.

Seeing as Cumberbatch has Alan Turing falling in love with a woman, I think it's Oscars all round.

Update: Benedict Cumberbatch talks crap to the Daily Beast...

The only thing that’s in contention, really, is whether he died by accident or on purpose. His suicide note is framed to make it look like an accident. His coroner’s report said that it was a solution of cyanide and water, and then there was a bite of the apple.

There was no suicide note and the apple was not tested for cyanide.

He goes on, equally witlessly...

Who’s Lord McNally? Well, he’s probably gay. They’re always the biggest homophobes.

Which is a homophobic cliché.

Which proves one of the benefits of a private education; the ability to talk absolute rubbish with absolute confidence.

  1. I was really looking forward to this but now I'm in two minds about seeing it at all. Also realising lately what an annoying posh fuckwit Benedict Cumberbatch is doesn't help.
    Might just watch Derek Jacobi in Breaking the Code again, instead...
