Alex Gibney takes on Scientology in trailer for ‘Going Clear’


Not satisfied with taking on the Catholic Church in Mea Maxima Culpa: Silence in the House of God, Oscar winning documentarian Alex Gibney has since turned his lens on L. Ron Hubbard and the Scientology faith. In the opening seconds of the trailer for Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief, an HBO Documentary debuting March 29, a speaker immediately labels the religion a cult, and the sinister feeling and tone is palpable.

Reviews for Going Clear out of Sundance were stellar, perhaps some of the best Gibney has had in years. But this isn’t even his only documentary planned for this year, as he’s also releasing a Steve Jobs documentary, Steve Jobs: Man in the Machine at SXSW.
