Consensus: Outrage walks a difficult moral and ethical line -- and not always successfully -- but despite its flaws, it's a fascinating, provocative look at homosexuality in American politics.

Roger Moore
Orlando Sentinel

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.

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.

Wesley Morris
Boston Globe

Outrage succeeds as activism, but it excels as a window into certain political psyches.

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

Dennis Schwartz
Ozus' World Movie Reviews

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

High-spirited documentary about the ultimate hypocrisy imaginable. Closeted politicians pushing for anti-gay legislation in the name of "family values".

'Outrage' makes a convincing argument that legislating while living in the closet is detrimental to everyone.

Interesting, but sadly, not compelling. This should have been a better documentary.

I agree with the documentary "Outrage" that we all need to live our lives as openly as possible, especially those we love, whether we are ordinary… More

Rides a weird line between being revenge flick fun and totally inappropriate. Ultimately it's hard not to side with the filmmakers, who don't think… More

Not as bold or as angry as you want it to be, but this necessary portrait of where we are now is more than good enough. Naming names and letting people talk,… More

This Kirby Dick documentary was passionate and strong but it made statements that it could not backup. Such as the media covering up gay affairs and hardly… More
