News & Interviews for Heaven's Gate: The Cult of Cults: Season 1
Viewers may bob in and out during the first few episodes, though it's worth sticking out for the grand finale, as sickening as it is oddly poignant.
By the end of the four hours, I felt some emotional connection to the cult members and their families and that was Tweel's primary intention, I'm guessing. Getting me to feel that this exploration was ultimately especially perceptive... [It] falls short.
Heaven's Gate: Cult of Cults is a thoughtful assessment of the mechanisms of how otherwise smart, savvy people are attracted to fringe beliefs. It takes a story that is larger than life and brings it solidly back to earth.
The human toll isn't lost among the kooky, UFO-centric beliefs of Ti and Do's followers.
Whether you're a true crime junkie or a casual viewer there's plenty in Heaven's Gate to interest you.
What The Cult Of Cults does very effectively is tell the story of the organization, showing why it attracted members and held onto them for so long.
Audience Reviews for Heaven's Gate: The Cult of Cults: Season 1
Feb 22, 2021The documentary gave a very good overview of Heaven's gate and how they formed. Cult docs are very interesting. Was fascinating how different the leadership was in Heaven's gate, but that may be why they really only had 30-80ish members most of the time. A very good reminder that intelligence is not enough in and of itself to avoid cults. Do wish the Doc would have focused a bit more on the epistemology. Why did Sawyer really think it was true still? Well worth the time.
Jan 30, 2021Great cult documentary. Brings the crazy effectively. Nice length. Enough to settle in and enjoy, but not excessive.
