Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief

This was an interesting one – it’s a documentary about the insidious and conspiratorial nature of the inner upper echelons of Scientology, but a lot of it seemed to mirror the plot of any TV series you watch that features personality-cult religions, which I guess ought to have highlighted how well-researched TV series are nowadays, but it couldn’t help but give the documentary a vaguely fictional feel.  A notable film, because rather than just stating that they disagreed with the contents of the film, the Scientology movement actually mounted a smear campaign against the film and its principals – very much in-keeping with the modus operandi detailed in the film. 👍
