★★★★ "... gloriously funny" - Tim Robey, Daily Telegraph
‘I find that the most inexplicable behaviour is motivated by very relatable human impulses,’ - Louis Theroux
Following a long fascination with the religion and with much experience dealing with eccentric, unpalatable and unexpected human behaviour, Louis Theroux delves into the murky world of Scientology.
Inspired by the Church’s famed use of filming techniques, and aided by ex-members of the organisation, Theroux uses actors to replay some incidents people claim they experienced as members in an attempt to better understand the way it operates. In a bizarre twist, it becomes clear that the Church is also making a film about Louis Theroux.
Suffused with a good dose of humour and moments worthy of a Hollywood script, My Scientology Movie is stranger than fiction.
