Critic Reviews for Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief
It's not a sense of outrage that viewers are left with. It's sadness.
An indispensable general history of the enduringly controversial church.
For those who know almost nothing about the sinister side of Scientology-presuming there is any other side than the sinister side-Going Clear will be a terrific revelation.
The film is a harrowing one, yet incomplete and one-sided, as is the nature of any film in which a secretive organization seeks to control the narrative.
Audience Reviews for Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief
An appalling and terrifying documentary that exposes the horrific truth behind this abusive cult created by a ridiculously delusional man who discovered the most ingenious way to brainwash so many incredibly stupid people into becoming willing prisoners of his lucrative sham.

An arresting, disturbing documentary on the Church of Scientology told by former members who decided to leave at different points in time for various reasons. This is an interesting perspective for a documentary concerning the subject of religion, especially one that is so prevalent in Hollywood. The filmmakers do an excellent job collecting many different stories and viewpoints from those they speak to, and the result is a horrifying exercise of religious exploitation of power. The manipulation and abuse that infects this religion is very concerning, and it will be especially fascinating to watch the public's response to this movie once more people get the opportunity to watch it.
