Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood and the Prison of Belief
#93

Our free weekend of HBO/Cinemax on Dish started last night and I caught this right after it started. Crazy stuff, and hugely compelling. I was making dinner and had to keep pausing it because I didn't want to miss anything.



Agreed on the length--I wanted to hear more, and honestly, I thought they went light on Tom Cruise. I was expecting a lot more. But wow, that lead guy reminded me of a dictator of a country the way he carried himself. And what the hell was up with the Navy outfits? That made them look even crazier. And the Oscars could learn a thing or two from those Scientoligist meetings.



Can't believe a "religion" with only 50k followers has $3 billion in the bank and the US government has done pretty much nothing to investigate them. The lawsuit they talked about at the end, filed by the guy's wife...the end result of that will be interesting. You can lie to the press and your followers all you want...but if you do that in a court of law, you're fucked.




I remember seeing late-night commercials for Dianetics when I was in college and floundering a little in my life...I'm glad I never picked up a book to read more about it. Then again...I might have been in a documentary! DAMMIT!
