Outrage, Kirby Dick, 2009. 89 min. Outrage is a controversial examination of the hidden lives of some of the most powerful anti-gay policymakers in the U.S. The filmmaker probes deeply into the psychology of these secret lives, the complicity of the media in keeping these secrets, and the ethics of “outing” and public exposure.
