On Sunday night, Alex Gibney's documentary Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief aired on HBO, and everyone is talking about it.
The film is an exposé based on Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist Lawrence Wright's almost identically-titled book, Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood, and the Prison of Belief, which claims to uncover the inner workings of the church. The film premiered earlier this year at Sundance Film Festival.
..and of course, Twitter users have a lot to say about it.
A lot of people find the documentary to be frightening.
Others have mixed feelings.
Some people are just confused.
There are those who are criticizing the documentary, and coming to the support of Scientology.
@FreedomEthics, which is run by Scientologists, is taking this approach.
Many sympathize with the people who belong to the church.
#GoingClear was more shocking than i thought it would be. I feel bad for those that can't escape the claws of that "church"— Kristopher Martel (@kmartel_sports) March 30, 2015
