I've watched the The Imitation Game before. It makes me want to learn more about cryptography and computer internals. If you're into this sorts of things then checkout the Ben Eater channel on YouTube.

In artificial intelligence (AI), cryptography is used to identify patterns in intercepted data streams that are indicators of encrypted data. If you enjoy artificial intelligence, you must watch it.

Perhaps should be noted that the Imitation Game contains so many historical inaccuracies that it is almost entirely fiction.
