I wouldn’t be surprised if actor Tom Cruise’s control and tenacity comes from his indoctrination in the Church of Scientology. Religion can transform people from the inside out. Mr. Cruise’s confidence embodies the forbearance training a millionaire can purchase in the Scientology cult.

There are at least eight (expensive) levels of “thetan” presence that Scientology implants into its devotees, and the result is a forceful presence which allows you a “tone 40” command or possibly more. I am usually mesmerized by Mr. Cruise on screen, I think he’s got at least a “tone 40,” and now I can speculate from whence it came.

This revelation is thanks to the Canadian premiere of My Scientology Movie, by director John Dower and Louis Theroux, which screened at Toronto’s Hot Docs festival on Sunday. The film is captivating, hilarious and frightening as it pushes how far the boundaries for religious freedom can go.
The documentary embeds Mr. Theroux into a recreation of Scientology techniques with a former inspector general of the faith, Marty Rathbun. Over his 27 years as a Scientology devotee, Mr. Rathbun held the highest rank of ecclesiology, unsuccessfully tried to reform the belief, and now writes and counsels on exiting the faith.
