Ida Lupino United States, 1950

SpacePirate's rating of the film Outrage

Tackling rape in the 50s took guts. I am a real admirer of Lupinos. Sometimes it doesnt all come together but the risks she took to tell stories she wanted to tell, many times without an actual distributor to help, is admirable and what filmmaking is all about. The rape scene itself is very claustrophobic and well done for its time. The only downfall for me was the ending felt a bit rushed.
