This is the documentary which started an obsession for me as I needed to find out more about this cult afterwards. It is so well put together and all of the fact-checking done by the writers Lawrence Wright and Alex Gibney was so refreshing as having watched some other documentaries which just spew hate at this organisation and just poke fun at the beliefs, these guys came with hard facts and they actually had some truly amazing accounts from within Scientology. The editing can be a little choppy at times, but it didn't bother me as all the stories that are told in this documentary are told with such care and respect for the people involved. Really is an eye-opener and I have to say if this piques your interest then please watch Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath which actually has Mike Rinder in it, who truly is amazing at exposing this organisation.
