Directed by Alex Gibney Framing Reality

Alex Gibney’s documentary sensation, based on Lawrence Wright’s best-selling history of Scientology and its apostates, gets the big screen treatment it deserves.

Beyond the fascination and kookiness of the self-help parables, e-meters and alien emperor foundation myth, Going Clear paints a chilling picture – all of it denied by the Scientologists – of a ‘church’ that lavishes riches on its favourites and metes brutality upon dissenters and their families. It also confirms the status of Gibney (Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room, Mea Maxima Culpa, We Steal Secrets: The WikiLeaks Story) as America’s preeminent contemporary documentary filmmaker. — Toby Manhire
