Description

Join mischievous journalist Louis Theroux as he probes—and provokes—The Church of Scientology in this hilarious exposé. The beguilingly unassuming Theroux won’t take no for an answer when his requests to enter the Church’s headquarters are turned down. Inspired by the Church’s use of aggressive filming, and aided by ex-members of the organization, Theroux uses actors to re-enact incidents people claim they experienced as Scientology members. In a bizarre twist, it becomes clear that the Church is also making a film about Theroux. Suffused with a good dose of humour and moments worthy of a Hollywood script, My Scientology Movie is stranger than fiction.

Critical praise:

  • The Telegraph - 4/5, "Gloriously funny."
  • NOW - 5/5, "Compelling."
  • Variety -  "This riotously funny doc yields its own penetrating insights into the fiercely guarded administration of the church that Ron built."
