    A good example of a film that ends up better than the sum of its parts. Overall, the direction, writing, and (especially) acting in this film aren't superior. That said, it's an enjoyable and thought-provoking study of a man who dedicated his life to studying human sexuality. But it also questions (to a point) Whether he went too far.

    Kinsey (Neeson) is almost robotic in his exploration of sexual behavior, seeing every possible permutation of sexual encounters -- no matter…

    Liam Nesson is a badass physically, mentally and sexually. This film is not only clever in the depiction of his main character but also very interesting in its themes. Laura Linney shines as the spouse of someone obsessed with all kind of sexual sensations, ALL KIND. The script has great structure and very fascinating conversation. But is Nesson who is simply amazing, Alfred Kinsey was a very complex and sometimes contradictory person, but our favorite Jedi (right?) knows how to…

    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!!
