I've been rewatching all of Terrence Malick's films recently. The only one of his I still haven't seen is The New World, which I think I'll watch today.

Scientology and the Prison of Belief
I've just seen the documentary Scientology and the Prison of Belief.
And every day I walk past the Religion of Scientology advertising in the public street a free personality test.
The documentary claims Scientology is another American money making cult which is aided and abetted at the highest levels of American Government, namely, the Inland Revenue Service.
And naturally anybody who makes such a false claim is a Suppressive Person and is Fair Game for the good members of Scientology.

United Gates of America, a 2006 BBC documentary about Canyon Lake, California: the biggest gated community in the state. It touches on quite a few things: why the residents moved there (to escape the rampant crime outside the walls, mostly), who lives there (predominantly middle-class white families), what there is to do in the community (as one woman put it, "three things: have an orgy, gossip, and drink"), the governance of the place (community bylaws are written by the Property Owner's Association, therefore the only people who get a say in how the place is governed are registered property owners, who are predominantly the men of the households; in effect most women are de facto not eligible to vote), what the future holds for the kids who grow up in the community (not a whole hell of a lot; one teenaged boy they follow in particular can't even join the Marines because he fails the basic aptitude test spectacularly), and they even talk a wee bit about 'Minutemen' who watch over the nearby border.
I'll admit I'm biased, I have little patience for people in Homeowner's Associations and the like (including my own neighbourhood's community association, which thankfully has no actual power to set bylaws or anything of the sort), so this entire documentary appealed to me as a sort of Schadenfreude. The idea of living in a gated community seems sociopathic to me, which the airhead Stepford wives, loser, stoner kids and skinheads of this documentary reinforced. Canyon Lake seems like a soulless hellhole.
