HBO's Scientology Movie "Going Clear" May Pose Big Problems for Tom Cruise, John Travolta - 2015-03-28
Sunday night– you must watch the HBO documentary "Going Clear" about Scientology. Even knowing what I do about this cult, I was actually frightened after watching Alex Gibney's extraordinary movie. Two hours isn't even enough time to cover the horrors of what has gone in what Gibney depicts as a get rich quick scheme invented by a crackpot science fiction author. What you'll see is a lot of people testifying about blackmail, intimidation, illegal surveillance, and physical violence.
But what's most shocking is the way both Tom Cruise and John Travolta come off in this movie. Their careers could be in big trouble after enough of the public has sat down and really watched "Going Clear." Gibney is calling for them to come clean and finally stand up to Scientology's diminutive leader David Miscavige.
