I really enjoyed this movie. (Jaimee enjoyed it too, but it made her a little depressed. I get that.) I wasn't expecting to like it as much as I did, because I expected it to be either a hagiography or a hatchet-job -- but it was neither. Or maybe it was both. Kinsey did important work and he was a Great American, etc., but aspects of his methodology were plainly and obviously terrible, and the movie does a great job of detailing that.
It also does a fantastic job of peering into the postmodern ethical abyss Kinsey helped usher in. "Okay, nothing is prohibited, everything is permitted. But surely not everything.
Not [x], not [y]." It doesn't give us an answer, but how could it? There is no answer.
Definitely worth your time.NetflixAmazon
I'm surprised this movie got so little Oscar love
. It was at least as good as Sideways
, which was better than Ray
, which was better than Best Picture winner Million Dollar Baby
