Theroux versus SeaOrg

Delving into America's unconventional and anti-establishment subcultures is Louis Theroux's bread and butter and in MY SCIENTOLOGY MOVIE he sets his sights on the biggest one of them all – The Church of Scientology. Unable to get the church's chairman David Miscavige to appear on camera, Theroux and former senior church official Marty Rathbun deliberately set out to provoke the organization into betraying its authoritarian leanings. And as they start auditioning actors for a non-existent movie about Miscavige, they are stalked by church members who claim to be making their own documentary.
