TORONTO - Oscar-winning director Alex Gibney didn't have to wait for anyone to actually see his new documentary "Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief" before Scientologists were already denouncing it.

The Church of Scientology officially dismissed the eye-opening doc as a "one-sided false diatribe," built on the testimony of "bitter, vengeful apostates." The church has also claimed that Gibney and HBO "stonewalled 14 requests by the church to offer relevant information, with more than 25 individuals with first-hand information eager to speak."

Prominent church member John Travolta, meanwhile, told the Tampa Bay Times he wouldn't even bother watching something "so decidedly negative."
