Great movie, but not for kids.
| Original Score: 4/5
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.
| Original Score: A
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.
| Original Score: 8.8/10
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.
| Original Score: 3/5
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.
| Original Score: 5/5
| Original Score: 3.5/4
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.
| Original Score: 3/4
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.
| Original Score: 3/4
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.
| Original Score: 8/10
Captures authentic truth by refusing to lionize its far-from-perfect subject.
Genocídio, sim; orgasmo, não. Somos mesmo uma espécie evoluída.
"Kinsey" isn't the story of a moral man. It is about how one person's morality can affect a culture of repression.
| Original Score: 4/4
Kinsey's interest in sex combines the psychological and mechanical, and the film strikes a balance that is neither erotic nor clinical.
| Original Score: B
