If you have any questions about Scientology or want to learn about the “religion,” than Going Clear is definitely a must watch. Going Clear discusses the history of the practice, from the life of founder L. Ron Hubbard to covering current celebrity figureheads such as John Travolta and Tom Cruise; it also included insightful interviews with eight former members of the church. The documentary also delves into famous controversies within the church, such as harassment of members trying to leave, including reports of stalking, invasion of privacy claims and even lawsuits. It moves a little slow at first, and there is a lot information jam-packed into a tight two hours; however it all feels essential without anything falling through the cracks. Going Clear uncovers the truth behind Scientology, sparking your curiosity and giving you chills all at once. I highly recommend it.
