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.
Fascinating if one-sided examination of the power of religious cults and the methods they employ to attract new members.
Though sometimes didactic and clichéd, this first feature by Canadian director Ralph Thomas has a raw power that makes it work as both message and drama.
