"Kinsey," like the pioneering sex researcher profiled therein, reduces its subject to a bit of a dry academic exercise.

Fascinating as well as entertaining...

"Kinsey" is itself a sex education movie that uses historical fact and personal stories to articulate things that statistics can't reveal, like the uniqueness of every individual's imagination.

I urge you to go see this film when it comes to a theater near you -- not only to enjoy a well made film, but also to send a message that there ain't nothing wrong with a little bump and grind.

Performances are excellent, and the period look is impeccable, but Condon's worshipful tone makes the movie an exercise in unconscious irony: an utterly conventional biography of an utterly unconventional man.

He's a terribly flawed man but instead of soapy histrionics, Condon underlines the tragedy with outrageous humour.

The saddening thing about Kinsey is that it's no longer as funny as it would have been just a few years ago.

Notable for encompassing a man committed in the extreme to the uninhibited, matter of fact scrutiny of sexuality, even if open and exposed like a wound.

Kinsey is a hagiographic tribute to the man who helped make possible the emerging do-whatever-you-want orthodoxy of our own times.

The shame is that the film doesn't convey more mess or danger; its sex and its politics are almost entirely dinner-table-friendly.

Liam Neeson somehow knits Kinsey's qualities together in a likeable human pattern.

Neeson gives one of his best performances and is -- you'll forgive the expression -- as loose as he's ever been in a role, while Linney turns in another effortless performance.

While subjects like masturbation, homosexuality and wife swapping were taboo in Kinsey's time, they're everyday topics today.

Does it openly moralize for greater sexual freedom? Surely not, but indirectly it may encourage more folks to examine their own beliefs.

Captures authentic truth by refusing to lionize its far-from-perfect subject.

"Kinsey" isn't the story of a moral man. It is about how one person's morality can affect a culture of repression.
