A bad imitation

Be the 1st to vote.

Interesting little revelation of the method in movie/myth making.

The important part of movies is controlling the emotional message, and not so much the “facts”.

Though The Imitation Game (like other some of the other biopics that stand a chance to win an Oscar this weekend) has come under fire for historical inaccuracies and not delving deeply enough into Alan Turing’s sexuality, the Oscar-nominated director says that emotional accuracy was very important to him while making the film. Though he left some of the best odd details he learned about Turing out of the film—”He was allergic to pollen, so he used to wear a gasmask sometimes in meetings without telling anybody why,” for example—Tyldum says the overall arc of the film is true to Turing’s life.

Latest hoaxes audio

Be the 1st to vote.

Jeff C has a good roundtable on the past week’s hoaxes. Despite the fact that he is misleading people on the Taipei plane hoax (deliberate or not, you be the judge), he still has some people on this chat worth listening to.

Here’s his deleted rant on the shill/no shill drama. Not much to listen to, but an example of how distracted truth “groups” can get, again whether paid/professional or not, from researching hoaxes.
