Inspired by the Church's use of filming techniques, and aided by ex-members of the organization Theroux uses actors to replay some incidents people claim they experienced as members in an attempt to better understand the way it operates. In a bizarre twist, it becomes clear that the Church is also making a film about Louis Theroux.

Investigations of a fringe "religious" organization that is filmed on location in and around LA. Other than fresh witnesses of ex-church and current members, it shows little more than the 2015 "Going Clear: Scientology & the Prison of Belief" which detailed backgrounds and teachings/controversies of Scientology founder L Ron Hubbard and successor Ron Miscavige, supported by more sources than this production.

I had no idea that the indoctrination and control exerted over members of this belief system was so severe. The movie focuses on a dictatorial leader who has kept himself out of sight. Lots of fear and no love seen here. Eye opening.

This production stays quite limited in scope and eschews delving into the church's theology, probably to avoid any legal battles. It mainly focuses on the church's "captain," portraying him as someone with anger management issues. BBC could've done a better production.

Definitely not a religion by any means of the word, this cult is unlike anything seen before. It has a vast empire of wealth and power that defends with extreme measures, connect this with Going Clear.
