I found the emphasis on interviewing technique of particular interest: we still use so much of it today in counseling. Truly groundbreaking. I can remember being trained as an HIV counselor, and some of the discussion about body language, the way our questions were phrased, etc. -- I didn't even realize until tonight that a portion of that interview methodology came straight from Kinsey's work.
Controversial figure though he was, I'm grateful to have grown up in the time after his work, rather than before.
I was surprised to see, well, how old much of the audience was, especially at a place like the Tara Theatre. We're talking definite grandma and grandpa age. Not that they don't still have sex; many certainly do. Just that . . . while they'd have to be 77 to have been 20 when Kinsey's first book was published, I'd imagine that quite a few were at least old enough to recall the firestorm of reaction at the time.
Also, I think Neeson's excellent performance in the film was more than good enough to overcome any remaining tarnish on his career from the hair extensions he wore in Episode I. :)
