    "Kinsey," the biopic about controversial and groundbreaking sex doctor Alfred Kinsey, suffers from hero worship of its subject. The film makes some attempt to dissect the demons plaguing Kinsey the man, but overall the film is too reverent and glossy to adequately dive into the controversy Kinsey created. It doesn't so much encourage debate as tell you which side you should agree with.

    Liam Neeson is good enough as Kinsey, and Laura Linney received an Oscar nomination for playing his…

    Examining the life of Alfred Kinsey superlatively played by actor Liam Neeson, he is magnetic in the part and delivers some of his best work since Schindler’s List. The film has a good script, and relies on solid performances from its cast to create something memorable. Kinsey is a well crafted picture that tells a very good story, and the cast chosen for their roles is perfect, and each actor brings something wonderful to the screen that amplifies the film.…

    This felt like a standard biopic in many ways, but I really enjoyed it. It was really interesting to get an insight into Kinsey's personal life as well as his scientific work.

    everythings all professional, with award winning actors. however, it tries so hard to be relevant (see the GWB-era sex abstinence-only education big in the early 2000s) that it just doesnt have really anything to say that kinsey himself didnt already say. a good biopic isnt just about its subject and their life - its about reconstructing a time + space and a way of thinking we could learn from. "kinsey" is like a wikipedia article put to film, factually consummate but emotionally empty. when it ended i was like "tru" and wondered why a documentary wasnt made instead.

    If this topic interests you, then by all means, you should see this. It's well done, informative, and the performances are great. I was just bored by it however.

    although it now pales in comparison to the stunning sexology tv series masters of sex, kinsey is a serviceable yet unremarkable biopic bolstered by a great supporting turn from laura linney

    Ever wonder how we went from sex and sexuality being a total conversation taboo to 8 year olds being able to explain the concept of bukkake to you? Well this is a story about a man who is very much reponsible for that.

    Together with his research team including Clyde Martin (Peter Sarsgaard), Wardell Pomeroy (Chris O'Donnell), and Paul Gebhard (Timothy Hutton), he interviews…
