Scientology: probably THE greatest pyramid scheme of all time. This film is a rather sobering analysis of the "religion" that thoughtfully analyzes the cult mentality of the followers, and asks us to empathize with them more than anything. The documentary uses a pretty standard chronological structure that follows the religion from its beginnings and follows it to the present. The testimonies of past members are the backbone of this film, and their stories are both unreal and appalling.

People are dumb as hell. That's about it. Tom Cruise is a lunatic.

I hope that any religious person or devout zealot can look to this documentary and is able to internalize how batshit crazy they feel about scientology, but then reflect that on their own religion. Because that's how atheists feel. In the end, talking bushes, arks, magical powers, fluffy clouds with 40 virgins and zombie sons of god seem no less insane than scientology. I'll admit scientology is a little more blatant in their brainwashing and pyramid scheme, but who's really to say.

Part of me wants to believe that this movie, Wright's book on which it's based, and all the other documentation of the inner workings of this malicious, delusional organization will help put the final nail in the coffin of the cult of LRH. Another more depressed part of me keeps saying: "Just give Scientology a few hundred years of preying on the ignorant goodwill of gullible people, and see it evolve the same mythological pedigree as all other organized religions out there"
