    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.

    I don't especially enjoy biopics, but I liked this. It was fascinating, thrilling even, to see the beginnings of Kinsey's research come to fruition. Neeson's performance brings gravitas to the man himself, but it's his research and the ideas that it spawned that drives the movie.

    It's obviously a very personal project for Bill Condon, and he treats Kinsey with admiration without completely overlooking some of the more controversial paths his work led him. It moves at a pace, great…

    Just goes to show that asking the right questions solves more problems than it creates...
