Press Quotes

You couldn't call Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief entertaining, exactly, but it is absolutely riveting.

     —Liz Braun, Toronto Sun

There is order and selection, of course - to say that this is storytelling is not to impugn its parts - but much of what he has to show you is remarkable in or out of this context.

     —Robert Lloyd, Los Angeles Times

An indispensable general history of the enduringly controversial church.

     —Tom Gliatto, People Magazine

Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief... is at times jaw-dropping, scary, unnerving, even disturbingly funny.

     —Dave Wiegand, San Francisco Chronicle

Director Alex Gibney's hauntingly effective Going Clear... suggests only trouble ahead for the frequently criticized and always strange Church of Scientology.

     —Hank Stuever, Washington Post

If Going Clear were a Hollywood thriller, I'd complain that it's too over-the-top. But this is real life, which is mind-blowing, and as a documentary, it's disturbingly good.

     —Melissa Maerz, Entertainment Weekly
