  • Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief

    Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief 2015

    ★★★ Watched 31 Mar, 2015

    Interesting to hear the stories from the ex members, but ultimately unsatisfactory as it lacked any real investigative journalism.
    We had a whole history of LRH, but after two hours know nothing about Miscavige. I wanted to know how and where he lives, his family history, his tax affairs etc. but we had none of that so I am no clearer to understanding his motivations to lead the so called church.

    A good documentary, but a missed opportunity to be a great one.

    Michael Keaton is a great actor, but he made his fair share of bad films and this is one I'm sure Keaton and Ron Howard wish they could sweep under the carpet.
