  • Like a strident TV-news exposé, Ticket aims for the jugular instead of the mind -- Geraldo Rivera moviemaking.

  • All fairly predictable stuff, but delivered without too much sensationalism, strong on showing how the apparently harmless cult insidiously undermines the man's confidence and independence.

  • What makes the film so interesting is that it's not just a docudrama, not just a sensationalist expose, but a fully realized drama that involves us on the human level as well as with its documentary material.

  • Ticket to Heaven is an absorbing, frightening, entirely believable movie, which is particularly amazing in view of its subject matter.

  • The issue is treated in surprisingly black-and-white terms, with little insight into just what happens to the bright young hero during his indoctrination.

  • It's no barrel of laughs, but there are flashes of humour to lighten the load.
