Movie Reviews

I read some of the reviews on IMDb before I went to see the movie. AndI was struck by some of the negative comments it received. Even in thisday and age, there is a double-standard on &#x22;moral values&#x22;.<br><br>Hypocrisy vs. common sense. The movie cleverly reveals that Kinseyhelped us along the way, to become open about such a basic butnon-the-less extremely vital part of our existence. True, some of hissubjects were pedophiles or engaged in sex practices that most peoplewould find offensive. However, the knowledge that he as a scientistderived from his studies, is immeasurable - it enables intimate insightinto the human psyche, and with that, possible treatments for thosethat are sexually victimizing others. <br><br>And this is the key point: the law should protect life, the innocent(under-aged and animals) and of course, the non-consenting. Other thanthat, sex is something between consenting adults and no-one should havethe right to outlaw what you do in the bedroom. If you listen closely,the movie will give you the same message. <br><br>My only complaint is perhaps that on the subject of &#x22;perversion&#x22; theybarely scratched the surface on Kinsey&#x27;s personal response. It wasclear that as a scientist, he would continue on the path of knowledge,however dark it may have been. I would probably agree that the movieversion of his life and work was toned down to a &#x22;pill small enough toswallow&#x22; - still, I feel it shows the audience enough to get a pictureof who this man was.<br><br>Don&#x27;t expect &#x22;adult entertainment&#x22; when going to this movie. There islittle that will cause an open-minded, sexually in touch withhim-/herself adult embarrassment or even excitement. It&#x27;s more like adocumentary. <br><br>The acting was superb on everybody&#x27;s part, and Academy AwardNominations will be forth-coming - no doubt. Hopefully they will takesome wins home.

Bill Condon, working with his own material has come out with a moviethat serves to illustrate how the work of Dr. Kinsey awoke the Americanpublic to a better understanding of their sexuality in ways no one, upto that point, had ever dared to show. As he proved with his otherfilm, &quot;Gods and Monsters&quot;, Mr. Condon shows he doesn't mind tacklingadult themes, so scarce in the present cinema.<br><br>The film is documentary in style, as we are shown the life of Kinsey atdifferent times of his life. He had an unhappy childhood. His fatherwas a tyrant who never really showed love toward him. There are momentswhen the young Kinsey is shown as boy scout and there is an element ofhomosexuality that maybe, for fear, never came to the surface, but it'sthere, nonetheless.<br><br>Dr. Kinsey's life takes a turn when he meets, Clara McMillen, who hecalls &quot;Mac&quot;. It's with her that he begins a life of discovery in thefield of human sexuality that was taboo in American colleges anduniversities at the time. Albert Kinsey was the first one that spokeabout the things that were never said in polite company, or in theclassroom, up to that moment. His life was dedicated to understand whatmade human beings act the way they did, never being judgmental, butwith a tremendous insight to interpret the data and present it in acomprehensible way.<br><br>A puritanical American society reacted strongly against the findings ofDr. Kinsey. He was a man ahead of his times when he decided to gatherinformation about the sex lives of Americans and to publish the resultsin a best selling book.<br><br>As Dr. Kinsey, Liam Neeson, showing an uncanny resemblance to the man,himself, does a wonderful job. He shows a complicated character who wasnot easily understood by his associates and students. As &quot;Mac&quot;, hiswife, Laura Linney with a dark wig, gives an articulate performance ofMrs. Kinsey. Both actors are wonderful together, as they have alreadyshown in the New York stage. <br><br>Peter Sargaard, as Clyde, Dr. Kinsey's first assistant, shows he is anactor that will amaze from picture to picture. This actor has theability to get under each of his character's skins to make them real,as is the case with his Clyde. Also, almost unrecognizable, ChrisO'Donnell, who plays Wardell, one of the interviewers working with thedoctor. Timothy Hutton is Gebhard, the other associate who wasinstrumental in gathering the information to help complete Dr. Kinsey'sreport. John Lithgow, as Kinsey Sr. has a fantastic moment with Mr.Neeson, as he agrees to be interviewed, revealing a horrible secret.It's a wonderful moment done with panache by both actors working underexceptional direction.<br><br>There is a moment toward the end of the film where we see Lynn Redgravespeaking directly to the camera. It is one of the most effectivemoments in the film when this woman tells Dr. Kinsey about her life asa lesbian.<br><br>Mr. Condon's film clarifies a lot about the genius of Kinsey and hiscontribution to society.

Just as the focus of &quot;Kinsey&quot; thought he was being objective about atopic that had only been treated subjectively, the film is not anobjective bio-pic. <br><br>For the first half of the movie, the exquisite production design,costumes and make-up effectively recreate middle America before WorldWar II, as Kinsey's rigid upbringing and equally rigid scientific lifeas a zoologist are established. <br><br>Laura Linney as first his student then his wife adds an earthy and warmelement and her excellent acting adds womanliness beyond the script tothe movie that is missing otherwise. Their gradual move into teachingand studying sexuality is shown convincingly in contrast to the prigsaround them, with, ironically surely, Tim Curry playing his puritanicalacademic rival. <br><br>Accurate details include showing and reading from a popular marriagemanual, Theodoor H. van de Velde's &quot;Ideal Marriage: Its Physiology andTechnique;&quot; when I ran a used book sale at my local synagogue we wouldget many unread copies donated from now elderly couples who hadreceived it as part of pre-marital rabbinical counseling and it washilarious how sexist and inaccurate it was. <br><br>But writer/director Bill Condon takes considerable interpretive leapsas he moves on to &quot;the inner circle,&quot; as T. Coraghessan Boyle terms itin his fictionalized interpretation, when Kinsey hires, trains, worksand lives closely with male assistants for his first research projecton men. <br><br>Peter Sarsgaard is the stand out in the trio, as outstanding as hisrole in &quot;Shattered Glass&quot; and as all holds barred as in &quot;The Center ofthe World.&quot; But his characterization leans toward a cavalier attitudetowards women that is emblematic of this film until literally the lastminute. I don't see why his character would be jealous to the point offisticuffs of the attentions Timothy Hutton's flirtatious assistantwould be paying to his wife when he seemed to condescend to marriageonly for appearance's sake anyway. <br><br>The film dwells on gay men and skips through the research done toproduce the second tome on women, pointing out mostly Kinsey'scorrective biological information, therefore gliding over how it wasthe revelations about women that shocked the nation and led todifficult political and other consequences, though Margaret Sanger andEmma Goldman had promulgated similar information about women decadesearlier (and had been hounded out of the country for their efforts).The Kinsey Institute's FAQ on their Web site point out the activepartnership of female research assistants for this work, who simplydon't exist in the film. (And the Congressional investigations offoundations in the 1950's didn't just focus on the RockefellerFoundation's funding of Kinsey, but they haven't yet posted theircorrectives on their Web site.) <br><br>Similarly, as Kinsey is shown taking the leap from taxonomy to adviseras an avatar of the coming sexual revolution, the psychologicalcomponent of relationships, let alone sex, only comes up once such thatLiam Neeson's characterization ultimately seems naive. But Condon ismore interested in the political component, as he clearly sees asimilar tide of conservative criticism rising across the land again. <br><br>One also gets the feeling that someone either read the script or saw aworking print of the film and had to gently point out to Condon thatwomen simply get short shrift, so suddenly an extremely poignant codais added, with Lynn Redgrave as a very moving interviewee on howKinsey's work affected her life directly. <br><br>The aging make-up and cinematography are beautiful in indicating thepassage of time, matching seasonal passings and making earlydiscussions seem to have been documented in black and white. <br><br>The casting of the many research subjects is wonderfully varied and theNew York metropolitan area locations, recognizable only to thecognoscenti, stand in very well for varied cities, academic and sylvanlocales. <br><br>The closing credits are surrounded by fun period songs and zoologicalinteractions.
