Quotes

Louis Theroux: [Q&A] Marty Rathburn called me "a rimless zero". I suppose that's even less than zero because without the rim it's just the nothingness in the middle.
Adam Buxton: It sounds vaguely obscene, doesn't it? "Look at my rimless zero!" Ahem!

It was....okay.
11 October 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As others have said, the biggest problem with this documentary is the lack of access. Don't get me wrong; some of the testimony from ex members was pretty interesting. Although Louis didn't really push or probe them. And there were some genuinely funny moments. But in the absence of real access, or real insight I was at least hoping for some crazy encounters with the church. But we only got like, two or three brief appearances, none of which were particularly menacing or outlandish.

The reenactments were supposed to be menacing, but it felt a little like watching a drama class doing exercises.

So yeah I dunno. Overall a bit disappointed. I mean it was £15(!!) at the cinema! Expected more.
