Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief 
The Message is Clear - Who Will Listen?
3.5/4 stars

Superb documentary from Alex Gibney that takes a big chance. I am not a fan of Scientology and never have been - but one thing they do have is money. Money equals power and those in charge of Scientology know this - Going Clear exposes some hard truths, some that have been told, but this goes deeper and it doesn't pull its punches. Interviewing former members (some of who were very high up the ladder) and some former famous members (like director Paul Haggis and actor Jason Beghe), it really makes your skin crawl. Scientology is not a religion - heck, I don't know if it's even a cult, it's more like a corporation - one given free reign to blackmail, abuse, break up families, pay slave wages, harass and get away with so much more - all under the guise of "religion". Maybe this film will make a difference - maybe others will speak out - maybe some of the big names will finally turn their back on this sham - but it doesn't come without a price, With all their money, the people behind Scientology can force years of litigation or years of harassment - threaten, bribe, extort - you can't go against one of the most powerful organizations without making enemies and Scientology is no stranger to dealing with their enemies in all manner of ways. Watch this - spread the word and maybe, one day, this so-called "religion" will finally get what it deserves.
