In the first of our two-part series on Scientology in Film, we look at Craig Baldwin's Mock Up on Mu, a story of sex magick, science fiction, and technology.
We discuss Jack Parsons, one of the "characters" in Mock Up with Adam Parfrey of Feral House, the publishers of Sex & Rockets: The Occult World of Jack Parsons. We also discuss Peter Alexander's The Profit, a re-telling of Scientology-founder L. Ron Hubbard's life, and compare it with Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master.
