Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief

Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief ★★★½

a fascinating documentary that gives a glimpse of the inner workings of the upper eschelons of this quasi religion.

Lots of talking heads - but regardless, the subject matter is awfully compelling, bringing into question the meaning of faith and belief, as well as shining a light on cults that on the surface may actually have some value in bringing contentment to a person, but then, as it always seems to happen, it all gets taken a step too far in order to keep the sheep in line.
