Jeffrey Peixoto’s mesmerizing, wholly original film enters the mindsets of people who have had experiences with Scientology. But this is no sensational exposé of secrets—instead, Over the Rainbow is a fascinating, universal reflection on what shapes our perceptions of reality. Using skillful, disarming interviews and a heady brew of sound and image, Peixoto has made a profound, productively unsettling, and extremely accomplished film. The eye-opening cast of interviewees, mulling over their unique experiences, also includes a cognitive psychologist and an archival librarian, trying to make sense of it all. As the director said of his movie in an interview with Film Comment: “It’s just interested in you, really.”
