My Scientology Movie (2017)
Critic Consensus: My Scientology Movie offers a personal perspective on the controversial religion whose lack of investigative depth is more than balanced out by its sense of humor and all-around entertainment value.

Critic Reviews for My Scientology Movie
My Scientology Movie, the newest film by the British documentarian Louis Theroux, vibrates with effort-with machinations and stunts and stitch ups that all seem intent on producing an "aha" moment that remains tantalizingly out of reach.
There's not a lot of shockingly new information per se, but watching Theroux filming covert Scientologists while they in turn film him, and so on, has its own sort of meta-charm.
New look at well-charted territory adds just enough to justify its existence.
While My Scientology Movie provides a very entertaining tour of some of the questions that swirl around Scientology, viewers who've followed the story through the years will find little that's new or unexpected.
Audience Reviews for My Scientology Movie
It's well made, but due to the secrecy of the church, we know no more about it by the end of the documentary.
Covers a slightly different path than Going Clear but really keeps you on the edge with intelligence. I honestly thought this might not suit me but this cult has unlimited wealth to topple most of their opponents. Everybody should be watching this just like going clear.
I love Louis's documentaries, but this one is a dud that goes nowhere. Maybe if you have absolutely no knowledge of Scientology, you could learn something, but I've read quite a few books about it, and this had nothing new to say. It's not entirely Louis's fault- he was never going to be able to get information. The movie within a movie was pointless too, but I guess it was to pad out the little he had to work with.
