    Despite its title, Outrage is calm, riveting, and provocative. show more

    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    Some of the accusations feel more sordid than satisfying. show more

    Frank Scheck The Hollywood Reporter

    Proves to be an engrossing and entertaining polemic that successfully walks a fine line between thoughtful debate and, well, juicy gossip. show more

    Rene Rodriguez Miami Herald

    Even in the 21st century, public discussions of homosexuality still make a lot of people awfully jittery. With passion and candor, Outrage argues that everyone needs to just get over it. show more

    Wesley Morris Boston Globe

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

    Michael Phillips Chicago Tribune

    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. show more

    Lou Lumenick New York Post

    What is Dick's excuse for outing one cable news anchor but not a rival counterpart who is far better known? The anchor isn't antigay, but Dick likes the other network's politics better. Hypocrisy? Your call. show more

    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. show more

    Not exactly ground breaking news on some in Washington yet extremely eye opening at the same time. Just shocked Lindsey Graham wasn\'t mentioned. :)

    I don't generally like the idea of outing, but this powerful movie changed my mind. I admire Barney Frank's quote: "Politicians have a right to privacy, but not a right to hypocrisy."
