Once I saw the trailer earlier in the thread I knew I had to see it. Luckily my local university was showing it.
I thought it was brilliant. I felt bad for the credulous new age folk he deceived, but I think he, in the end, departed some really fundamental wisdom
they could learn from.
The new age folk he deceived in the movie were probably some of the kindest people, who meant nothing else but to do good for others and themselves,
but for some reason they were searching for what they were searching for in the wrong places, and allowed themselves to be deceived by a charlatan
without any question to the validity of the 'guru's' teachings.
This is what scares me most about the 'new age philosophies'—even though they mean well and are practiced by mostly kind-hearted wayward souls,
they seem to need to be told how to be spiritual by someone who they perceive as an authority on the subject, when they themselves are the only
authority when it comes to their own spiritual development.
I really recommend this documentary.
