And this is a witch hunt. It's not like you walk into the film as a Christian or Atheist or Muslim and suddenly walk out of thinking "Maybe I should join Scientology".
Smith is friends with Cruise, and so suddenly a science fiction film has to be Scientology propaganda. That is ridiculous.
Okay, maybe "parable" would have been a better word. The Scientology themes/parallels may not be explicit, and might
not have been intended, but they certainly seem to be there.
