  MOVIE POSTERKINSEY, 2004
Movie Reviews

Director: Bill Condon

Stars: Liam Neeson, Laura Linney, Chris O'Donnell

Review by Jeremiah Benjamin

SYNOPSIS:

A look at the life of Alfred Kinsey (Neeson), a pioneer in the area of human sexuality research, whose 1948 publication "Sexual Behavior in the Human Male" was one of the first recorded works that saw science address sexual behavior.

REVIEW:

Liam Neeson accomplished a rare acting feat in his title role as Alfred Kinsey: his performance made me believe unquestioningly that he was a scientist. As a biopic, this movie taught me a piece of American history I was unfamiliar with prior to watching it. A bold, fascinating -- and, at times, uncomfortable -- exploration of sexuality, this is one of those movies that is as important as it is entertaining, as it make you think critically about how our culture deals with sex and our coming-of-age customs regarding loss of virginity and our attitudes -- religious, societal or otherwise -- toward our sex lives.

The pivotal scene in the movie involving his [first time] is one of the most honest portrayals of the awkwardness and unglamorousness of first-time-sex I've ever seen on film; although the characters were very much in love, the sex was so unsexy to watch, it was so true to the real anxieties and sensitivities of the loss of virginity it makes the viewer wince, and the success of the movie very much hinged upon the authenticity of that scene.

Another point of fascination later in the movie is the family dynamic portrayed in which Kinsey's teenage children react differently to his unconventional openness toward sex. One of the children is very matter-of-fact and robotic in reporting her daily teenage sexual explorations, which serves the movie as a point of humor, while the male sibling rebels against Kinsey's open encouragement of sex. This is contrasted with Kinsey's rebellious relationship with his conservative father.

This is a thought-provoking movie guaranteed to generate a lot of self-aware conversations walking out of the theater.
