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.
