The Oscar-winning director of a documentary that exposes brutality and spying within the Church of Scientology says the group should lose its tax-free status.

Alex Gibney told the ABC's Lateline that Scientology was a "prison of belief" for its members and it acted with extreme cruelty.

"I don't think they should have tax-free status. It's not about whether or not they are a religion, whatever their cosmology is that's up to them," he said.
