    It's probably the most correct way to approach sex in its own peculiar form to be described. Not just as a concept but as a practical function in everyone's life.
    Not one of the best Liam Neeson's roles but he's good at it too - i'm not saying he is better saving daughters or fighting with wolves than having sex but this particular role didn't convince me enough.

    The story of Kinsey's life, is fascinating, funny and complex - It straddles that type of biopic that features a figure from scientific discovery mixed with the celebrity and private/public persona; so it's perfect for Bill Condon! I thought 'Oooh why is he doing this, its hardly screaming, is it?' But I was wrong as Liam Neeson does some lovely man on man snogging, which complimented his 'taken' roles quite well - I'd like to see Jason Statham take on…

    Thank god for Kinsey. If it wasn't for his research I'd probably have had my willy chopped off by now!!

    For the first half of Kinsey, Neeson's nerdy enthusiasm and Condon's stream-of-consciousness crosscutting between Kinsey's adulthood and youth carried the movie along with a surprising pace and an engaging charm. In the end, however, Kinsey seemed to me a fairly run-of-the-mill science biopic. Condon seeks drama in various familiar science-film sources of conflict: the marital friction resulting from Kinsey's obsessive devotion to his work, the public and institutional resistance to Kinsey's studies, and the practical obstacles of completing such wide-ranging…

    "Let's talk about sex." Kinsey not only uses this tagline referentially, but as a caveat of the picture's content. Graphically and candidly reminiscing on the evolution of sexual awareness, Bill Condon's sympathetic and fearless biopic unflinchingly illuminates the quintessential pioneer of sex and its mechanics - Alfred 'Prock' Kinsey; a towering biologist who first became enamoured with gall wasps and their immeasurable diversity. Then it was humans. Then sexual intercourse between humans. And then the diversity observable in the activity…

    On the surface this is a conventional biopic of Alfred Kinsey, a notable American biologist who pioneered the way into learning and understanding human sexual behavior as we know it today, but it manages to really grasp your full attention, much more than most films that I know, and keep you not only entertained but mildly informed on how ignorant most people were prior to his research and publishings on the study of sex. Particular amazing performances are put on…

    Biopic of the famous american biologist and sexologist Alfred Kinsey (1894–1956) directed by Bill Condon, in his second biopic after James Whale's in 1998's "Gods and Monsters" (with Sir Ian McKellen). He later "ended up" in the Twilight Saga...
    Liam Neeson in probably his second greatest performance after Schindler, is a great match for the personality of Kinsey and gives much depth into his character. Laura Linney as his wife and partner in life is great too, in a more…

    A thoroughly compelling portrait of Alfred Kinsey, an extremely interesting subject for a movie and home to one of Neeson's most convincing performances.

    This frank, fascinating film works so well thanks to its incisive scientific approach on a taboo subject. Liam Neeson's towering performance renders the film simply unforgettable. He's Alfred Kinsey, a man whose obsession of understanding sexual behavior in men and women first earn accolades and recognition, and then ultimately scorn and disdain. Kinsey was on the right track – “everyone’s crime is no crime at all” – but he goes too far by not including love and emotions in his studies. True, he does ask, “how does one measure love?” but without that source, his sexual behavioral studies are merely incomplete.
