Indie Movie Guide: Scientology, Obituaries and Catfighting

Scientology is a touchy subject, especially in Hollywood, which is why we rarely see any kind of “insider” documentation about it. Bespectacled documentarian Louis Theroux (The Most Hated Family in America) attempts to investigate the organization in My Scientology Movie, in theaters March 3, with his unique spin using interviews with ex members and actor re-enactments. Also this week in limited release is The Last Word, starring Shirley MacLaine as a controlling businesswoman who hires a journalist (Amanda Seyfried) to write the obituary she wants printed.

See host Alicia Malone’s take on these films and a few others worth checking out in this week’s episode.
