It’s not often I say, “You gotta see this movie”, but Deprogrammed is one of those movies. An intensely interesting documentary, it centers around Ted Patrick, the man that created the concept.

After his son and nephew were seduced by a cult, Ted dedicate his life to breaking the mental hold of these groups. Patrick only had a 10th grade education, but his determination to fight these groups is inspiring. The documentary is made by the sister of one of his deprogrammed people. Ted’s results were far from perfect, which makes the film so fascinating.

If you’ve been watching Leah Remini’s Scientology show, this documentary is a great addendum to this fascinating topic. Check it out on Netflix.
