Scientology, Hollywood and the Prison of Belief
Fri frakt inom Sverige för privatpersoner.
We meet founder L. Ron Hubbard, the science-fiction writer turned prophet, and his tough, driven successor David Miscavige. We learn about the church's specialised cosmology and language, its legal attacks on the IRS, its vindictive treatment of critics, and its phenomenal wealth. We see the church court celebrities such as Tom Cruise while consigning its clergy to hard labour under billion-year contracts.
Through it all, Wright asks what makes a religion, and whether Scientology in fact merits this constitutionally protected label. Now an award-winning HBO documentary film, Going Clear pulls back the curtain on one of the most secretive organisations at work today.
