Kinsey (2004)

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
Alfred C. Kinsey -- the eccentric, pioneering, controversial researcher whose 1947 study on human sexual behavior ignited a firestorm still not fully extinguished -- is the focus of this engrossing film, featuring Liam Neeson in one of his best performances to date. He plays Kinsey as a dedicated, dispassionate scientist whose apparent lack of guile and tact not only made him some powerful enemies but also frustrated and infuriated his ...

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
Alfred C. Kinsey -- the eccentric, pioneering, controversial researcher whose 1947 study on human sexual behavior ignited a firestorm still not fully extinguished -- is the focus of this engrossing film, featuring Liam Neeson in one of his best performances to date. He plays Kinsey as a dedicated, dispassionate scientist whose apparent lack of guile and tact not only made him some powerful enemies but also frustrated and infuriated his supporters and co-workers. Laura Linney is superb as his long-suffering wife, Clara, who understands and encourages her husband even when his behavior becomes intolerable. Writer-director Bill Condon Gods and Monsters treats his subject with an appropriate detachment, portraying the man as so focused on his work that he actually encourages members of his staff to have relations with one another and record their “findings.” Kinsey’s bisexuality gets the same direct, objective, non-prurient treatment, and Neeson handles this aspect of the character with great delicacy. Timothy Hutton, Chris O’Donnell, and Peter Sarsgaard are excellent as the researcher’s assistants, and John Lithgow offers a bravura turn as Kinsey’s strict, sexually frustrated father. To their credit, Condon and his actors generally eschew sensationalism, approaching Kinsey and his work with objectivity and clarity. They go astray only in the heavy-handed treatment of the alleged “witch hunt” that targeted the scientist. The team’s findings, now almost universally accepted despite continuing reservations about Kinsey’s sampling and methodology, won’t shock today’s viewers, who after seeing this movie may well regard this pioneering figure with much more respect than his contemporaries ever did.

    I Also Recommend:

    Risque and intelligent...

    This is an excellent biopic about Dr. Alfred Kinsey, a pioneer in the field of human sexual research. It is intensely graphic, but not vulgar or distasteful. I wouldn't recommend watching it with your children, or with your parents for that matter, but watching it with others will give you an excellent springboard into some thought-provoking conversation. This film includes several stellar performances by Liam Neeson, Laura Linney, and Peter Saarsgard.
