I'd heard the buzz and read the reviews, but only saw it today.
"There is a right to privacy, but not a right to hypocrisy. It is very important that the people who make the law, be subject to the law. People who are not subject to the laws will make harsh laws because they don't have to live with them." --Barney Frank
This movie is fantastic.
Outrage is an indictment of closeted politicians who lobby for anti-gay legislation in the U.S. Get it? Queers creating laws that hurt queers.
Some names are no surprise, like Larry Craig. But others will blow you away once you learn about the positions they held (or hold) and what they did to you and me.
Directed by Kirby Dick, Outrage is a powerful, disturbing and riveting documentary. It's not innuendo, it's not vague....it's factual and straightforward.
It spurred me to do the wall of shame (scroll to the bottom left of the blog) and although the first installment only features nine hypocrites...there are plenty more to follow.
I cannot recommend this film enough.
(faces are only blurred for the trailer...they want you to see the movie)
