Director Kirby Dick is best known for his Academy-Award nominated documentary Twist of Faith and for This Film Has Is Not Yet Rated, an expose of the M.P.A.A. film-rating system and the M.P.A.A.'s employees. In the film, Dick goes P.I. on the censors, figuring out who the "secret" members of the ratings board are and following them around L.A.
Dick's latest documentary follows a similar trajectory, albeit with very different subject matter. The film is Outrage, and Dick's target is hypocritical conservative politicians who repeatedly use their power to undermine gay rights legislation while secretly living a closeted gay lifestyle. Anyone want to guess which famous Florida politician gets working over in the film? It's none other than Governor Charlie Crist. I have not seen the film yet (I'm awaiting word from the publicists), so I can't comment on Gov. Charlie's part of the film, or what ground gets covered. We'll have a full review up on the CL movie site as soon as we see it.
Now the good news: Outrage will get a one-night-only showing at Tampa Pitcher Show on July 15. You can check out the trailer for Outrage after the jump.
