independent game reviews

Benedict Cumberbatch is odds-on to be nominated for an Oscar (at the very least) for his brilliant turn as Alan Turing, the Second World War code-breaker who in 1951 was convicted for gross indecency over a homosexual act.

It’s the performance of his career in what is also the best British film of the year.
