just as bold a film as brokeback mountain, but predates it. that said, i don’t think it’s as emotionally powerful. it works better as an informative thought-provoker than it does a personal study. to be sure, kinsey is an interesting person and so is his relationship, but his work and its findings are more interesting. of course you have to view it all with the knowledge that kinsey and his father had fairly extreme upbringings and experiences with sex early in life.
