The former disciples interviewed here, now mostly professionals or entrepreneurs in New Agey businesses, seem frank about their leader's excesses, but the wild subject matter cries out for a more objective treatment.
[An] artfully executed and engrossing documentary ...
Baker's transformation from "spiritual father" to megalomaniac follows a familiar path of brainwashing and hedonism ...
While the movie isn't up to much more than illustrating how far his reach extends (two of the commune members live in Yelm, Thurston County), it's a very agreeable entertainment.
Great stories don't always make for great documentaries, although it's easy to confuse the two.
