The Synopsis for Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief (2015) 720p

A devastating two hour documentary based on Lawrence Wright's book of the same name. Scientology is laid bare by a film that skilfully knits together archive footage, testimonials from former high ranking officials and public, and dramatic reconstructions.

The Reviews for Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief (2015) 720p

Effective, Gripping InterviewsReviewed bycgalloVote: 10/10

I was involved with Scientology from 1978-1990 and encountered some of the human rights abuses that Alex Gibney exposed in his documentary. The Sea Org people, who sign Billion Year contracts, bore the brunt of the mistreatment and are well represented in this film. Most former members will know of details that were not included in the show, but the topics that became the focus received a more complete treatment as a result.

The humanity of these survivors shown through in each interview and should evoke empathy in anyone willing to accept the truth in the story. I never felt that someone was embellishing or seeking attention; in fact, quite the opposite.

A huge thank you to HBO for having the guts to air this and not back down.

Scientologists will be shocked also at these revelations.Reviewed bytheoraclebeVote: 10/10

Scientologists are not allowed into the Sea Organization management bases and the locations are kept secret from them. The Sea Organization is it's own (communist) culture. They frown on the customers (Scientologists) as "dilettantes" . They also surprisingly, feel they themselves do not need the Scientology they sell. They have a "no case on post" policy where they are expected to not have the problems Scientology is peddled to resolve.

The one huge outness though in the documentary, from my viewpoint, was within minutes of the movie starting, Lawrence Wright translates Dianetics and the beliefs as a person having two sides of a brain. One reactive and one analytical. I realized there he had never even read the Dianetics book. There are no such theories as that. I was kind of disappointed about that because I realized if there were any Scientologists out there watching, they might discount everything else in the movie. And this, you know for me was the elephant in the room.

Woman narrating that was supposed to be Hubbard's ex wife talking gossip. But she never spoke out or up while she was alive. Made me discount that too. That devalued the film a bit.

Fortunately, the testimony given by Mike Rinder, Marty Rathbun,Silvia, and Tom Devoght brought the film back into focus with something real and believable with their testimony.

I was disappointed that Karen De La Carriere was not in the film, especially towards the end when I realized there is more vital information about the Church of Scientology on her you tube site (Surviving Scientology) than this documentary produced by HBO.

At the end of the doc Larry Wright says what he really wants is for John Travolta to leave the church. Not sure why he is that emotionally invested with Travolta, seriously. That was a little creepy. The few celebrities in the Scientology crowd, added to the Sea Organization (The leader's private crew) amount to less than 1% of the Scientology population. It seems to me the leader is the one that ought to leave the Church, with a police escort.

The good news is, they really captured the church leader David Miscavige at his finest self-promoting, gloating, narcissistic, dastardly, lying manipulative self. They translated that beautifully.

This documentary is a miracle to have come into existence when you consider the wall of secrecy surrounding that place, as it is against their religion to disclose information to the "outside" world and means the Scientologists will be expelled if they do. This is what the film makers were up against. This is written in their codes, the code of silence! It is also against their religion to co operate with the demands of civil law or to rat out another Scientologist.

This is directly from their ethics codes book. These are "suppressive acts" which are grounds for expulsion:

"Suppressive Acts include public disavowal of Scientology or Scientologists in good standing with Scientology Organizations; Public statements against Scientology or Scientologists. Testifying hostilely before state or public inquiries into Scientology. Reporting or threatening to report Scientology or Scientologists to civil authorities. Bringing civil suit against any Scientology organization or Scientologist including the nonpayment of bills or failure to refund . Delivering up the person of a Scientologist without defense or protest to the demands of civil or criminal law.

The above"religious codes" enable the self appointed "leader" or, as he refers to himself, "The Pope", to engage and carry out all criminal acts with the full support of his members. I do think this is valuable information that should have and could have been in the film. Considering these codes, the film makers pulled off a miracle producing what they did.

Fascinating summation of what's wrong with this "Church"Reviewed bySecretAgentWVote: 10/10

I've always wondered about Scientology, and its unique approach to "spirituality." I remember clearly the Dianetics commercials of the 80s with the Volcano, and almost picked up the book once or twice out of curiosity, but never did. Oddly, it was my own experience with a cult - Jehovah's Witnesses - and my research on the internet when I left that organization that lead me to the Operation Clambake (xenu.net) website years and years ago. The revelations in this movie are not new, but they are finally out from under the cloak of anonymous postings by scared individuals. It took celebrities and defecting top officials, who weren't cowed by the church's relentless "fair game" attacks to bring all of this out in the open. That's allowing the little guys to tell their story with less and less risk. Because now that the world is watching, the church's bullying and harassing is backfiring. Watch this documentary, then read Scientology's "reactions" (which are mostly "liar liar pants on fire" and "oh he's a big stinky head, I have a picture of him holding a BEER from years ago - that's right a BEER!"), then come back and watch this movie again. And you'll never fall for a "personality test" pitch at your local mall.
