In Indonesia, the tobacco industry is virtually unregulated. Over two-thirds of all men are smokers and it's commonplace for children as young as six to take up the habit. Investigating this phenomenon in Malang, VICE visits a clinic that promises cures to a plethora of modern ailments through tobacco and smoking. Heroin is the most addictive drug on earth, and some people will do anything to kick the habit. Enter Ibogaine, a drug made out of the African iboga root, whose intense, hallucinogenic properties make it a Type-A felony drug. But many swear it's the most effective way to kick heroin addiction, especially when combined with a ritual that involves face paint and chanting.

Alex Gibney turns his gaze to Scientology in this provocative documentary based on the book by Pulitzer Prize winner Lawrence Wright - a tale of ego, exploitation and lust for power. Gibney profiles eight former members of the Church of Scientology, whose most prominent adherents include A-list Hollywood celebrities, shining a light on how the church cultivates true believers, including their experiences and what they are willing to do in the name of religion. Fearless and fascinating, this latest cinematic opus is a powerful exploration of the psychological impact of blind faith: what Lawrence Wright calls the prison of belief.
