Informative and entertaining. Though, not much drama to speak of. Neeson is great and the subject matter is sometimes fascinating.

It had a decent enough plot to keep me interested. But, in real-life Kinsey's work was much more problematic, immoral, and unscientific. The movie did little to show this.

It's usually a good idea to steer away from biopics with only a surname for a title, but this one's worth your time. Liam Neeson plays the entomologist-cum-sexologist who hooks up with both Clara (Laura Linney) and Clyde (Peter Sarsgaard). Furthermore, Kinsey confirms something I've suspected for a long time: Being in a hotel room with a naked Peter Sarsgaard will easily increase your Kinsey Scale rating a point or two.

Ah either your fascinated by this film or you just really do not care, I just did not care. It was well shot and acted but I was not interested in the subject matter. I did not think any of the characters were that well developed and they failed to say if Kinsey was truly alienated from others and it failed to say if he went to far with some of the people he chose to interview. This is once again where someone in the production was unable to make a decision themselves on who Kinsey really was.

An interesting subject of course, but something just didn't work about it. I would give it a 2/4 rating because it had its moments or its points, but weirdly enough it was almost preachy.

Kinsey

A great movie about the scientific acquisition of information about sex. I've seen this movie when it first came out on DVD and it remains one of my favourites because of its unflinching look at a man's life and his devotion to his work. Even though everything around him starts to fall apart, Alfred Kinsey remains focused and objective. His study on human's sexual behavior paved a way for the American society to become more aware about sex, to be able to talk about it more freely, to defy the norm, to realize that sex is a natural thing. I especially liked the bit about Kinsey's "relationship" with one of his co-workers, his conflict with one of his family members, and his interaction with his ever-loving wife, played beautifully by Laura Linney. I wish more movies were made as elegantly ...
