  1. I entirely agree with you selecting 1917, War Horse, and The Hobbit. I haven’t seen The Imitation Game or The Electrical Life of Louis Wain.
    I would also add his portrayal of Sherlock Holmes on TV and Frankenstein where he took turns in playing the doctor and the monster with the other actor.
    Also, although not universally liked, I did enjoy his playing of Dr Strange.

  2. I’m surprised that you haven’t see The Imitation Game as that based on a true story, you will definitely like The Electrical Life of Louis Wain as it is quirky, and it based on a true story. I have seen Sherlock on TV and that is really good, Frankenstein is on stage and when it appears on TV, I will watch it. I think personally I should watch Doctor Strange again
