Sundance: 5 Things to Expect From Alex Gibney's Damning Scientology Doc 'Going Clear'

23 January 2015 10:30 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

"Armstrong Lie" director Alex Gibney drops his latest bomb on Park City this weekend with "Going Clear," a documentary exposé of the Church of Scientology that dragged him through the gauntlet to get made. HBO, no stranger to scandal-making with its ever-broadening documentary slate, commissioned Gibney's adaptation of Lawrence Wright's "Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood, and the Prison of Belief" just after the nonfiction book was published in January 2013. The book analyzes the history of L. Ron Hubbard, and of Tom Cruise and John Travolta's various, and wildly public, relationships, among others. Wright gained notoriety in 2011 when he profiled screenwriter/director Paul Haggis—who broke from the Church in 2009 in the wake of its startling pronouncements about Prop 8—in The New Yorker. Anticipating legal and religious retaliation, HBO President Sheila Nevins has said that some 160 lawyers looked at the film, which premieres on HBO »
