HBO To Air Highly-Anticipated Scientology Documentary


The countdown begins for tomorrow night’s premiere of the long anticipated HBO Documentary Going Clear that examines the Church of Scientology. The film is based on Lawrence Wright’s best selling book of the same name and it will take a critical look at some of the more controversial aspects of the religion. Given Scientology’s tendency to litigate against critics, HBO reportedly hired a whopping 160 lawyers to work on the film. I’d say this movie is going to be iron clad. Check out a great preview piece from NPR below and stay tuned for my review of the film.
