Format: DVD
Kinsey may talk frankly about sex, but while it's entertaining enough there's not much there. Bill Condon is too in awe of his subject to seek out the drama in his story: indeed, its surprising just how easy the film makes Kinsey's sex studies seem. With no trouble getting a grant and only Tim Curry's shallow stereotype offering any campus opposition, there's not much in the way of threat or challenge, and the film seems afraid to go to the really dark places aside from one brief scene with William Sadler's proud paedophile. Throughout, Kinsey is presented like Abraham Lincoln freeing the slaves and the promise of the early scenes gives way to an old-fashioned biopic that feels so surprisingly like a 50s Scope movie with rude words that I expected a young Gregory Peck to turn up in a grey flannel suit at any moment. Odd, too, to note that Neeson seems to have based his American accent not on Americans but on Anthony Hopkins standard-issue American accent.

Fox's UK DVD includes plentiful deleted scenes but is missing some of the extras from the NTSC 2-disc set.

The perfect companion for all film enthusiasts is THE ROMA VICTRIX WINE BEAKERCalix Imperium, Roma Victrix Pewter wine beaker

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.

Format: DVD
KINSEY is the story of Alfred Kinsey, here played by Liam Neeson, the author of "Sexual Behavior in the Human Male" (1948) and "Sexual Behavior in the Human Female" (1953), both of which caused raised, um, eyebrows.
As the film succinctly shows, Alfred, the son of a puritanical minister that went so far as to rail against zippers for giving idle hands easy access to occasions for sin, grew up to be a zoologist whose obsession with collecting and studying the gall wasp gained him a measure of obscurity. However, after marrying Clara McMillen (Laura Linney), with whom he achieved sexual liberation after sorting out a few physical impediments with the help of a knowledgeable physician, Kinsey achieved local notoriety at Indiana University by teaching an enlightened and graphic sex education course for those students and staff contemplating marriage. It was there that he first utilized questionnaires to elicit personal sexual histories, the methodology, administered by trained interviewers, that he later used in the thousands across the nation to build the database for his two books. In KINSEY, we also see depicted the Kinsey couple's unconventional sexual relationship, as well as those of Alfred's cadre of interviewers and their wives. Hugh Hefner could've been proud to have the investigative team over to his mansion for a frolic.
Insofar as it goes, KINSEY appears to give a reasonably accurate summary of the sex researcher's bio. I base this conclusion on my own sketchy knowledge of the subject, hastily gleaned from a website. The film does skip over a couple of minor points. It doesn't share that Alfred was an atheist who thought Judeo-Christian sexual ethics repressive.

Format: DVD
Not being a huge fan of Liam Neeson, despite an electrifying performance in Gangs of New York, I didn't have high hopes for this film but it really turned out to be very good. Kinsey, a professor, specialising in a particular wasp turns his research to the controversial subject of sex and in particular what couples of any gender, do in the bedroom. His studies spill over into his personal life and the lives of his research fellows. Laura Linney plays his long suffering, but with moments of pleasure, wife. Both performances are believable and credible. The plot is engaging and keeps quite lighthearted in the face of such controversy. My only complaint is that just as we seem to get to the meat and bones of Kinsey's story the film ends. It really left me wondering "what happened next?" Usually in a good film that ending can be used to great psychological effect, but in a semi-biopic film it just seems odd and more than a little unsatisfying. Stilll enjoyable watching, and I may review my stand on Liam Neeson as an actor.

7 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Amazon Customer TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 28 Mar. 2006
Format: DVD
This is a film rich in excellent acting, being shot in New York the Director was able to cast a plethora of fine stage actors working in NY for short cameo roles. This gives the film a depth and quality that shines as the drama unfolds.
Liam Neelson completely assumes the persona of the somewhat withdrawn, awkward in company but professionally dominant professor. Neelson's vivid portrayal of Kinsey is superb acting, but because the main character is somewhat remote the film looses a little impact. The director intended this to be compensated for by Laura Linney in her equally brilliant portrayal of Kinsey's wife Clara McMillen, but as the drama is firmly focussed on Kinsey and the controversy surrounding him, her role is not sufficiently large to fully achieve the purpose.
The ten minute long opening title sequence is a master class in conveying a great deal of information in a short period. More superb acting from Lyn Redgrave as the final interviewee in the film, just sit and wonder.
A very fine DVD is rounded off with a long list of deleted scenes and an excellent director's commentary.
