Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief (25-Jan-2015)

Director: Alex Gibney

Writer: Alex Gibney

Based on a book: Scientology: Hollywood, & the Prison of Belief by Lawrence Wright

Keywords: Documentary

Documentary exposes the inner workings of the Church of Scientology.

ABSTRACT
With critically-acclaimed documentaries about WikiLeaks, Enron, the Catholic Church's sex abuse scandals, and Lance Armstrong's doping under his belt, Alex Gibney sets his sights on the Church of Scientology, bringing a cast of former Scientologists and Church officials together to share their terrifying stories of David Miscavige and company with discussion of L. Ron Hubbard's origins and rise to infamy thrown in for good measure.

While not exactly filled with groundbreaking revelations for anyone already cognizant of Scientology's history, Going Clear is an unprecedented and expertly-crafted look at the church's ignominious track record for general audiences.
