Just four days to go now before the airing of Alex Gibney's documentary about Scientology, Going Clear, on HBO Sunday night at 8 pm. We have another screenshot from the movie for you, featuring former top Scientology executive Mark "Marty" Rathbun.

We noticed that some press stories about Going Clear criticized Gibney for not explaining that Rathbun was still a Scientologist and audited other people who had left the church. Manohla Dargis of the New York Times was one notable example.

But there's a good reason why Gibney didn't refer to that in the film, and that's because it's simply not true.
