Critic Reviews for My Scientology Movie

All Critics (80) | Top Critics (24) | Fresh (71) | Rotten (9)

  • My Scientology Movie, the newest film by the British documentarian Louis Theroux, vibrates with effort-with machinations and stunts and stitch ups that all seem intent on producing an "aha" moment that remains tantalizingly out of reach.

  • There's not a lot of shockingly new information per se, but watching Theroux filming covert Scientologists while they in turn film him, and so on, has its own sort of meta-charm.

    March 30, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • New look at well-charted territory adds just enough to justify its existence.

    March 11, 2017 | Full Review…
  • One of the best documentaries of the year.

    March 10, 2017 | Rating: A | Full Review…
  • While My Scientology Movie provides a very entertaining tour of some of the questions that swirl around Scientology, viewers who've followed the story through the years will find little that's new or unexpected.

    March 10, 2017 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Theroux raises troubling questions about psychological warfare and how devoutness shades into fanaticism.

    It's well made, but due to the secrecy of the church, we know no more about it by the end of the documentary.

    I love Louis's documentaries, but this one is a dud that goes nowhere. Maybe if you have absolutely no knowledge of Scientology, you could learn something, but I've read quite a few books about it, and this had nothing new to say. It's not entirely Louis's fault- he was never going to be able to get information. The movie within a movie was pointless too, but I guess it was to pad out the little he had to work with.

    Covers a slightly different path than Going Clear but really keeps you on the edge with intelligence. I honestly thought this might not suit me but this cult has unlimited wealth to topple most of their opponents. Everybody should be watching this just like going clear.
