Overview

Kirby Dick, the Academy Award-nominated director of This Film Is Not Yet Rated, exposes the hypocrisy of closeted politicians who actively campaign against the very community they secretly belong to. Some of the most influential policy-makers in the United States are gay, but you wouldn't know it to look at their voting records -- despite being members of the LGBT community, many closeted politicians actually vote against the proposals designed to give that community equal rights. In speaking with such members of the gay community as U.S. representatives Tammy Baldwin and Barney Frank, as well as radio personality Michelangelo Signorile, activist Larry Kramer, and former N.J. governor Jim McGreevey, Dick is able to explore the complexities of leading a double lifestyle, as well as highlight the double standards of a media that has become obsessed with covering the sex lives of gay public figures.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Josh Ralske
Kirby Dick's Outrage is a suitably angry and provocative documentary that exposes the hypocrisy of politicians who promote an anti-gay agenda to win votes while purportedly living in the closet themselves. As with This Film Is Not Yet Rated, Dick's exposé of the MPAA, Outrage presents its case in slick and dramatic fashion, its palpable sense of righteous resentment ameliorated by a sardonic wit. Dick's interest extends beyond merely making a compelling case that these political figures are, in fact, gay, despite their denials. He also explores the media's reticence about exposing them. Dick could probably have devoted more time to exploring the consequences of our national discomfiture relating to the subject. There's a section where the film deals with the impact of President Reagan's refusal to address the budding AIDS crisis in the 1980s, and Dick also delves into the way the Republican Party latched onto gay rights as a hot-button issue that generated support for George W. Bush and other conservative politicians including several who are exposed in the film. Dick shows the tragic consequences of this political opportunism in a montage of news stories from around the country about teens attacked and murdered because they were perceived to be gay. These segments really form the crux of the film's most powerful argument, but they kind of take a back seat to the sensational hook of the film, which is the exposure of several closeted politicians. In that sense, Outrage feels like a bit of a missed opportunity. Nevertheless, it is thought-provoking hopefully and cathartic in its indignation.
