  Kinsey (2004)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-04)

 :: rogerebert.com :: Kinsey
Kinsey interviewed thousands of Americans over a period of years, and concluded: Just about everybody masturbates, 37 percent of men have had at least one homosexual experience, there is a lot of premarital and extramarital sex, and the techniques of many couples venture well beyond the traditional male-superior position.

Kinsey's statistical methodology and the reliability of that 37% figure have been challenged, but his theory that heterosexuality and homosexuality are part of the same sexual continuum is still widely accepted.
Or to the fact that "Kinsey's" standard structure conceals a film that is daring in its willingness to insist on the basic soundness of the scientist's conclusions in the face of the current national mood.

 Kinsey - Movie Review
Professor Alfred Kinsey was a zoologist at Indiana University quietly working on variation in the gallwasp, but when students approached him for advice on their sexual concerns, he realised that no scientific studies existed for him to consult, and so shifted his research to the field of human sexuality.
Pioneering a non-judgemental interview technique, Kinsey and his team collected detailed sexual histories from thousands of people across the country, and his resulting book 'Sexual Behaviour in the Human Male', published in 1948, revolutionised American thinking with its claim, backed up by copious data, that in sexual life there is no such thing as normality.
Kinsey - not to mention the film that bears his name - still has power to provoke the most vehement of moral outrage, and only a brief search of the internet is required to see the entomologist being blamed for most if not all of America's ills.

 FrontPage magazine.com :: The Kinky Report by Don Feder
Alfred C. Kinsey is the Left’s secular saint — a revered figure who, they are convinced, came into a benighted world and (armed with reams of scientific research) heroically banished ignorance and sexual repression, and ushered in a new age of liberation, enlightenment, and pleasure.
"Kinsey" stars Liam Neeson, an actor who himself is venerated for his roles in films like "Schindler’s List." While it hints at Kinsey’s eccentricities (seducing his male assistants, urging his wife to have sex with his colleagues), the movie barely scratches the surface of the degeneracy of the father of the sexual revolution.
Among other findings, Kinsey concluded that 85 percent of American men had intercourse before marriage, 30-45 percent had extramarital relations, 70 percent had sex with prostitutes, as many as 37 percent had engaged in homosexual acts, and 10 percent were exclusively homosexual.

 village voice > film > Kinsey by J. Hoberman
For some, the zoologist turned sex researcher Alfred Kinsey (1894—1956) was a sort of Frankenstein who, operating in the 1940s and early '50s from a college campus in deepest Indiana, reinvented America's sense of its sexual self.
Half a century later, Kinsey remains a puritan bête noire, held responsible for everything from jump-starting the sexual revolution and promoting junior high school sex education classes to enabling pornography, gay rights, and abortion on demand.
Kinsey's middle section—with the hero organizing campus classes in marital preparedness, discovering a new interest in boys (mainly his aide-de-camp, played by Peter Sarsgaard), and enabling his cadre of devoted young assistants to swap wives—is pure Waters.

 Pansexual Healing - This biopic of the famous sex researcher Alfred Kinsey gets it right. By David Edelstein   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-04)
The point, says Kinsey, is to make the subject feel comfortable—because, after all, people could be shamed when they talk, as no one has talked before, about how they masturbate, how they fantasize, how they have sex.
That courtship scene, in which he ponders the significance of his students' nickname for him—"Prok," for "Professor Kinsey," and she suggests it maybe comes from the fact that they "like him"—makes you laugh while demonstrating how cut off the man is from the rest of the human race.
But if it's hard to feel much for Kinsey when he watches, impassive, as a fight breaks out over the wife-swapping within his research team, it's impossible not to share his joy as he wanders, near the end, among California redwoods with his loyal wife, ever-enthralled by the vastness of the natural world.

 News from Agape Press
Kinsey's data-collection methods have been called into question a number of times, with some critics calling attention to his statistically limited study sample, and others citing evidence that his interviewers were instructed to intimidate research subjects.
The CWA spokesman asserts that Kinsey could easily be called the "godfather" of the homosexual activist movement, the campaign to mainstream pornography, and even the campaign to strike down abortion laws.
He says Kinsey "was a sexual revolutionary masquerading as an objective scientist," whose most profound damage was done to children.

 OFFOFFOFF film review KINSEY movie by Bill Condon with Liam Neeson, Laura Linney, Chris O'Donnell, Peter Sarsgaard, ...
Prior to this work, Kinsey had studied and collected over one million specimens of gall wasps, an insect possessing the peculiar characteristic that, like humans, no two are alike.
As with anyone who has dedicated their life to the collecting and cataloguing of things, be it bugs or sexual positions, Kinsey exhibited an obsessive-compulsive type personality that made social discourse exhausting (his dinner time patter, for example, was particularly difficult to digest).
There's a lot of explicit talk in "Kinsey" the film — references to masturbation, fornication, stimulation, copulation, menstruation, penetration — but the sad fact about Kinsey the man is that by failing to recognize love, an overreaching human emotion clearly absent from his research, he considered it to be the dirtiest word of all.

Kinsey's studies have had an enormous impact on the law and the culture, despite later evidence that the research was fatally flawed and even involved cover-ups of child rape.

In Kinsey (opening November 12), Condon, who won the adapted-screenplay Oscar for Gods and Monsters, sidesteps the "biopic thing" with a disciplined formal conceit: The film takes shape as Kinsey's sexual case history, as if the man of science (Liam Neeson) were one of his own research subjects.
Amassing material for the script, Condon sought out Kinsey's surviving colleagues and posed his share of delicate queries about their mentor, who didn't blanch at turning himself and his co-workers into lab rats of human desire.
Kinsey was a secretive man, and he didn't show his emotions easily.
