GOING CLEAR: SCIENTOLOGY AND THE PRISONER OF BELIEF REVIEWED
“Going Clear” is the documentary that lit everyone on fire back in 2015. You get the funny music video and killer Alex Gibney direction. From there, you have to understand the impact of what’s going down. Going Clear is kicking the doors open and creating the mini industry of making Scientology exposes. Coming in at a tight two hours, Going Clear doesn’t waste a moment to put everything into perspective. Scientology exists as a the Pyramid Scheme to end all Pyramid Schemes.
