The cult leader is a ludicrous drama queen like figure who is probably insane. He is totally repulsive and devotedly self-centered; he has found a way to spent his life doing whatever pleasures suit himself to the detriment of those stupid enough to view him seriously. The followers-so called- are on the whole a bunch of ever so weak individuals needing to find meaning in their lives so that plays into the hands of the lunatic leading them.
I do not wish to be unsympathetic to the victims but I ask rhetorically who in their right mind would fall for such nonsense?
The maker of the film is also one of the followers and even if there may be some lack of independent reporting there is no doubt the "master" is a criminal and ought to be in prison....
