One of the best things about Louis Theroux's funny 2015 film, My Scientology Movie, was how unflappably polite he was while he argued with Sea Org official Catherine Fraser over a frontage road at Scientology's secretive "Int Base" and whether it was a public street or not.

A couple of times, Theroux visited the base during the movie, one time with former Sea Org worker Marc Headley, another time with actor Andrew Perez. When Theroux tried to get some footage by parking on the frontage lane — called Sublette Road — Fraser insisted that he was on private property and tried to get him to leave.

It's Theroux's manner, of course, which makes it such a great comedic moment, but also the apoplectic Scientologists, who hate having a camera crew so close to their property.
