The Telegraph -
It's all wickedly tendentious mischief, but when it's this gloriously funny, the points score themselves.
Movie Nation -
It's hardly the last word on this scam and its hilarious embrace of the “Duck Soup” uniforms and the addled imagination and crackpot ideas of L. Ron Hubbard. But that's the point.
The Globe and Mail (Toronto) -
What enlivens My Scientology is Theroux himself: watching him stumble from one idea to the next, interact with intense actors pulling their best Tom Cruise grins, butt heads with Rathbun, bicker with church insiders and throw their own idiotic lingo back in their faces.
Theroux's first big-screen doc is an entertaining affair, peppered with surreal moments and wry wit, but its elusive subject remains out of reach.
My Scientology Movie (2015)
Louis documents his investigation into what goes on behind the scenes of the infamous church of scientology.
