While the film is full of some very cogent arguments, there are major flaws in his case.

November 13, 2009
High-spirited documentary about the ultimate hypocrisy imaginable. Closeted politicians pushing for anti-gay legislation in the name of "family values".
November 8, 2009
This is definitely a side of the news that gets very little play in the mainstream media. For that reason alone, this film is worth a look.

It should be relevant to all viewers of political films, but especially meaningful to the gay community.

'Outrage' makes a convincing argument that legislating while living in the closet is detrimental to everyone.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

The examples trotted out in Outrage are so old that if you're interested in this topic, you read about them on the Internet years ago.

Director Kirby Dick's most ambitious and accomplished expose yet.

June 12, 2009
[A] comprehensive rundown of the duplicity of some of our leaders and much of our corporate mass media... howls with rage...
June 11, 2009
This is a portrait of how modern politics is still getting it wrong when it comes to gay rights, made worse by the fact that many of the puppet masters behind anti-gay legislation are homosexual themselves.

June 10, 2009
Dick takes aim after those who are more than happy to legislate your sex life, just so long as it doesn't curtail their own.

June 6, 2009
An inflammatory documentary that artfully skewers its subjects. Sic 'em Kirby!
June 5, 2009
The result is persuasive but incomplete. Dick is working here as a journalist, and the story is far from fully unfolded. Still, what he proffers will keep you thinking, talking and engaged.

Outrage succeeds as activism, but it excels as a window into certain political psyches.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
June 3, 2009
Clearly an activist piece of filmmaking, but cleverly put together and highly enjoyable...It does, however, raise some troubling journalistic questions.

[A] passionate, engaging, but sometimes irresponsible exposť.
May 29, 2009
The film's pretty good about saying why so much in the culture encourages a political life in the closet, either tacitly or directly. But even The Advocate had a problem with calling it a brilliantly orchestrated conspiracy.

The average viewer will be satisfied with the product, even if the film offers hardly any new information. The doc buff will witness a film that can't surface above the steady nonfiction output at the art house.

However, when it sticks to its strongest angle--attacking these people for their endless capacity for self-denial--"Outrage" does pack a significant punch and for this reason alone, it deserves to be seen.
May 22, 2009
It's an excellent film that has the potential to stand at a turning point in history and it's a must-see.
May 21, 2009
Kirby Dick's documentary argues that it's long past time that the many stories that shape closeted gay politicians' lives and careers be sorted out.
