Louis Theroux's Scientology movie is on TV tonight and it's a must-watch

If you haven't seen My Scientology Movie, you need to change that.

The past month we have been blessed to have our weekly dosage of Louis Theroux. His Dark States documentaries were absolutely fascinating (as if there was any doubt they wouldn't be).

They were short-lived, but only three in number, but then we got the great news that there would be another Theroux documentary on our television screens - a standalone, once-off special.

Louis Theroux: Talking To Anorexia aired on 29 October, but Louis' not done with us yet, with one of Theroux's best pieces of work being aired on television tonight: My Scientology Movie.


The film is centred around the self-proclaimed Baddest Ass Dude in Scientology Mark 'Marty' Rathbun - a former senior executive of the church - and focuses on alleged scenarios that people claim to have encountered in the church.

The Church of Scientology refused to cooperate in making a documentary with Theroux which led to his team up with Rathburn. The movie focuses on the alleged violent behaviour of David Miscavige, a church leader in California.

It's on BBC Two tonight 5 November at 9pm.

It's a must-watch to fill that Theroux gap that has formed in your Sunday evenings.
