In-depth review The Imitation Game is a powerful and moving drama about the mathematical genius Alan Turing, the man largely responsible for breaking the Enigma code. Turing, a homosexual, had to live a lie in order to stay at his job. Playing out in a particularly epic and crucial time of human history (World War II), The Imitation Game indirectly puts us face to face with the enormous destructive power of prejudice.

Saving private Ryan is a movie about II World War where an american group is ordered to find and get one soldier back home from the terrain of France, since this one soldier's all four brothers had been killed in combat. It is a interesting journey to look on the relationships between the men, and how the archetypal energies show up in this movie, switching side by side. Ultimately this movie is about courage. It is about making your dreams real.

Departures is an award-winning Japanese drama which tells the story of Daigo Kobayashi's journey from life as cellist in a Tokyo-based symphonic orchestra to life preparing dead bodies for their final parting in his home town Sakata. It is a movie about the big questions: life, death and relationships. A wise and beautiful movie, Departures gently invites us to embrace death as natural and to recognize that a life well lived is a life well died.
