Kinsey

Writer/director Bill Condon's candid look into the life of sex researcher Alfred Kinsey renews public discourse about how we view sexuality. Condon ("Gods And Monsters") retraces the steps of entomologist/biology professor Alfred Kinsey (perfectly played by Liam Neeson) as he leads a small group of researchers on an ambitious quest to catalogue the sexual interaction of thousands of American men for his scientific report "Sexual Behavior In The Human Male." Kinsey's realization that there is no such thing as "normal" in sexuality is supported in his own wandering sexual habits that threaten to ruin his marriage. Special features include commentary by Bill Condon, featurette "The Kinsey Report: Sex On Film," deleted scenes, a bloopers reel, featurette on the Kinsey Institute and an interactive sex questionnaire. Aspect ratio is presented in 2.35:1 Widescreen, with sound quality via Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround. (Movie - Four Stars, DVD features - Three Stars) Rated R, 118 mins. (20th Century Fox)
