      robert p Poor Alan Touring he won the war by breaking the Nazi's Code Enigma! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review dustin d Codebreaker was a fascinating, but short, documentary about Alan Turing, who I had only heard because of the Turing Test (the test of whether machine intelligence can pass for human). His life was fascinating and sad. During the War he had broken the Nazis codes and enabled the Allies to win, only to return to civilian life and be ostracized for breaking societal codes (he was gay when that was illegal in the U.K.). His contribution to tech is indisputable, and he is finally recognized both for his genius and his unfair treatment. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Fantastic archival footage and dramatization based on Turing's writings and people who knew him. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member A MUST WATCH! Alan Turing was such a fantastic genius, who deserves 100x more credit than he gets. My heart just breaks when I think what the British Government did to him. I won't say anymore just incase you don't know Alan Turing's story. I think this film should be shown in all classrooms, especially in the UK. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member Interesting to watch this drama/documentary which was made before The Imitation Game. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Watched the documentary after watching The Imitation Game and several videos about Alan Turing. Acting in drama was so so, but it did give a description about Turing's unfortunate lifestory. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/11/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
