    Um dos filmes mais interessantes do ano passado (infelizmente quase não visto pelas bandas de BH) foi o ótimo Kinsey – Vamos falar de sexo?.
    O filme é uma cine biografia que retrata a história do biólogo Albert Kinsey (interpretado por Liam Neeson) onde são apresentados fatos que vão desde a sua infância truncada (conturbada para melhor assim definir) até o lançamento do livro, campeão de vendas, "Sexual Behavior in the Human Male" onde aborda de forma profunda o universo…

    As Alfred Kinsey did with the gall wasp, can America trace its sexualized culture back to its genesis by merely retracing the steps?

    We may find it begins in 1948, when Dr. Kinsey’s “Sexual Behavior in the Human Male,” was published. It told us that we had pedophiles, homosexuals and chronic masturbators in droves. The book’s findings detailed publicly what we previously only discussed in hushed tones and in private journals.

    But by the time he was ready with his…

    What's most interesting about the film, I think, is its decidedly ambivalent take on Alfred Kinsey, the pioneering sexologist whose exhaustive research in the 1940s and early '50s brought sex, particularly its more offbeat practices, out of the taboo and into the light.

    Director-writer Bill Condon ("Gods and Monsters") might pay only cursory attention to Kinsey's much-debated research of pedophilia, but his movie does an admirable job venturing where many biopics don't, by exploring his protagonist's more disturbing traits. Condon…

    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…
