Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief
Documentary filmmakers Alex Gibney was in Toronto to promote “Going Clear”, the Scientology expose, which is getting a theatrical release at the TIFF lightbox, as well as playing on HBO.
Gibney says Tom Cruise, who is featured prominently in the film, is going to have a tough time promoting Mission Impossible 5 this summer.
People are going to ask questions, like “did you do your own stunts?”, and “do you really believe you were launched from a volcano?” …. Cruise is rumoured to be one the most important people in the church, which, according to the documentary, engages in abuse, intimidation and mind control.
In related news, Cruise is apparently looking for a new partner to help bolster his image. After the Katie Holmes fiasco, they are apparently looking for someone pretty and charming coming from within the church.
Hmmm – maybe John Travolta would be interested.
