DVD: Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison Of Belief

Building on Lawrence Wright’s book Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood, and the Prison of Belief, prolific documentarian Alex Gibney delves exhaustively into the history and machinations of one of the most successful and secretive religions of the last 60 years, from the life of its idiosyncratic founder L Ron Hubbard to its calculated deployment of Hollywood celebrities.

Effectively overlaying personal testimonies from eight former members of the Church of Scientology, with archival footage, this by turns disturbing, astonishing and darkly funny documentary is a chilling reminder of the dangers of blind faith.

Writer-director Alex Gibney, whose impressively comprehensive and musically sensitive biography of Frank Sinatra has recently screened on SBS, is the maker of We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks (2013), Mea Maxima Culpa: Silence in the House of God (2012) which is about sexual abuse of four young deaf men by clergy the American Catholic Church; Taxi to the Dark Side (2007) about the killing of an Afghan taxi driver beaten to death by American soldiers while being held in extrajudicial detention; and Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room (2005) about corporate corruption. Taxi to the Dark won the won the 2007 Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature.
