About the Movie
Documentarian Louis Theroux is denied admittance to the Church of Scientology's headquarters, setting into motion a clever, confrontational and funny plan to try and reveal the inner workings of the mysterious organization. Inspired by the Church’s use of filmmaking techniques, and with the aid of real ex-scientologists, Theroux uses unconventional methods to expose and antagonize the Church. In a bizarre twist, it becomes clear that the Church is also making a film about Louis Theroux. Infused with a good dose of humor and moments worthy of a Hollywood script, My Scientology Movie is stranger than fiction.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: At times it plays like an extended skit on "The Daily Show"; yet its disorder also makes its insights - like how strongly the church's training sessions resemble acting classes - feel refreshingly organic.
Fresh: One of the best documentaries of the year.
Fresh: Theroux raises troubling questions about psychological warfare and how devoutness shades into fanaticism.
Fresh: New look at well-charted territory adds just enough to justify its existence.
Louis properly ripped them another new one. This doc digs deep and shows many of these over 40 yuppie gangster wannabes embarrassing themselves, with their animated cyber troll antics. Don't worry David Miscarriage, if your business implodes, you could always run for president. I hope Marty dismantles it all. Here's to you Mr. Marty Rathbun🤙
Extremely funny and insightful
Louis is a riot! An original take on the Scientology expose genre.
one of the best docs of 2017
love louis theoux! watch it if you're weirdly fascinated by scientology.
