Entertainment Reviews:

Hollywood Reporter - 05/05/2009
"OUTRAGE proves to be an engrossing and entertaining polemic that successfully walks a fine line between thoughtful debate and, well, juicy gossip."
New York Times - 05/08/2009
"[A] snapshot of a rapidly changing landscape. Its accusations of hypocrisy and betrayal are pointed and in many cases persuasive..."
Los Angeles Times - 05/08/2009
"A powerful and disturbing documentary....OUTRAGE cuts crisply between news footage and interviews with nearly 40 subjects....A significant film."
Entertainment Weekly - 05/15/2009
"[A] furious, deft, revealing film....The movie excoriates the hypocrisy of self-hating gay lawmakers, yet it also explores the burden of the public closet." -- Grade: A-
A.V. Club - 05/07/2009
"[T]he film builds in passion and intensity until attaining a stirring cumulative power." -- Grade: B+
Washington Post - 05/08/2009
"During the film's brisk 90 minutes, a level-headed, fair-minded viewer might feel a range of emotion: contempt, skepticism, empathy, uncertainty, but never boredom."
Rolling Stone - 05/28/2009
3 stars out of 5 -- "This film is a muckraking provocation whose time has come."
Film Comment - 01/01/2010
"Their stories are horribly fascinating: the film presents them as shielded from exposure and leading duplicitous lives while being activist homophobes."

Product Description:

With OUTRAGE, provocative documentarian Kirby Dick (THIS FILM IS NOT YET RATED) confronts his most controversial topic yet. In his latest piece of cine-journalism, Dick exposes what he deems to be the rampant, hypocritical homophobia that exists in an American government that is, in fact, teeming with closeted homosexuals. Dick brings an impassioned and well-reasoned eye to his material, which should have viewers on the more conservative side of the fence paying closer attention than they would have had he taken a more blustery approach. As it stands, OUTRAGE is an illuminating, stirring call to arms. Dick interviews the political community's most prominent gay figures--including former New Jersey governor Jim McGreevey and Congressman Barney Frank--as well as many others (radio DJ Michelangelo Signorile, blogger Michael Rogers, and writer/activist Larry Kramer), who share their own thoughtful insights into just how deeply the personal and political corruption runs. In what is clearly the most controversial aspect of the film, Dick makes a case for the homosexuality of several politicians who continue to deny it (most notably, former Idaho senator Larry Craig and current Florida governor Charlie Crist). But OUTRAGE is by no means a finger-wagging witch-hunt--Dick's intention is not to ruin the life of anyone. Like McGreevey, who lived through his own personal years of torment, he believes that everyone would be better off if they acknowledged who they are, in public and in private.
