    Se hace pesada, como la mayoría de las películas biográficas, pero no es una mala película.

    Fascinating character - but a poor realisation

    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.

    I can't even begin to imagine what the Church might have thought about the Kinsey report back then...

    Segue a fórmula básica de três atos de toda e qualquer cinebiografia, e deixa de lado muita coisa interessante pra mostrar o básico da história.

    Mas é um filme que deve ser visto por todos, que mostra como o ser humano é hipócrita e nada além de um animal. Veja.

    TIFF 04. Some more fest-bait that I can't imagine we'd go to these days.

    A compelling film about the famed sex researcher, the personal drives that drove him in his research, and how his research affected him and those around him. Liam Neeson and Laura Linney are both at the top of their game here. The film views the sexual topics clinically through the eyes of Kinsey, but also allows the viewer to see the personal effects on the people involved, even if Kinsey himself has a difficult time connecting to the emotions involved. It's a fascinating and somewhat sad view of a man who opened the eyes of the nation to topics previously considered taboo.

    Lynn Redgrave moves me to weeping tears in her scene as an interview subject late in the movie. As Kinsey's down-home bible-belt parents, John Lithgow and Veronica Cartwright strike a heart-wrenching rapport, Cartwright the quiet, simplistically functional hausfrau and Lithgow the fire-and-brimstone chauvinist whose narrow mind prevents him from having any authentic connection to anyone; we can sense that Cartwright does see this, that her mind is not so narrow, but that it is no use in Lithgow's archaic house to voice it.

    Wasn't expecting that the biggest thing I'd take away from this are it's comedic/camp aspects. There's just something about a bunch of scientists watching a film of one of them having sex with a elderly woman (for science) while Neeson (as Kinsey) dryly explains the female orgasm when Timothy Hutton sitting with one leg crossed and a pipe in his mouth interrupts to ask "but what about the vagina?".

    A film about Alfred Kinsey, a pioneer in the study of sex, it seemed like a solidly made film, I just didn't find it personally engaging, I suppose. It feels somewhat like it goes between parts that seem very interesting, especially relating to his work, and less interesting elements of his personal life that just doesn't feel like it's consistently presented, as though it's sort of jumping some key times that minimize understanding his changes over time. As though the…

    Doesn't avoid all the biopic pitfalls and the most interesting part of Kinsey's story, his work, could have used more attention. Overall though, Kinsey is an intellectually and emotionally engaging film about the work and life of a deeply fascinating man.

    Surprisingly engrossing drama about a very interesting man.
