From Academy Award-nominated and Emmy-winning directors Jehane Noujaim and Karim Amer (The Great Hack, The Square, Control Room) comes The Vow, NXIVM documentary series following a number of people deeply involved in the self-improvement group NXIVM over the course of several years. The Vow is a story of indoctrination and the step-by-step journey of NXIVM members defecting and outing Keith Reniere. The series takes a deep, nuanced look at the NXIVM organization, which faces with various charges, including sex trafficking and racketeering conspiracy, against its highest members – most notably founder Keith Raniere, who was convicted in June 2019 and is currently awaiting sentencing.

Amidst claims by NXIVM participants of both profound transformation and devastating abuse, the series, like Noujaim and Amer’s previous films, seeks to reveal the issues behind the headlines and explore the emotional toll of unfolding events on these individuals.

    What struck me as most poignant about this show was that the whole time, while the scandal is unfolding, you never stop hearing what NXIVM preached. The philosophy is so good and Idealistic. When taken sincerely it’s what we should all strive to be. Despite the monster as it’s center, we see the people trying to bring him down actually practicing this preaching. It feels tremendously inspiring.

    Both Allison and Keith are guilty as sin and she should have gotten a much longer sentence than she did because she loved him and was fully aware and willing to do every single thing she did. They are both lower than dirt

    Love how they talk of humans destroying the world, yet organise group cruises.that are detrimental to the ocean and the world at large. Hypocritical idiots!

    Sounds like scientolgy, minus claiming it is a religion. They are both cults using, tried and tested methods. Ideas often start of as good & true, it p****'s me off when always taken to somewhere dark.

    However I'm a way this is the world, we are all manipulated by the
    'powers that be', it's just so big and so deep most can't see it as it it not so obvious. They also know 'freedom' is actually the best way to control!

    Keith sounds exactly like other self-help coaches quite popular on the internet nowadays. They too have their herd of fanboys who think their Master is being incredibly profound , when he peddles banalities , logical fallacies and elaborate word salads.

    To see a star like Allison Mack mess up a stellar career is heartbreaking. Keith was a shallow bs artist. Obvious nonsense. Life is hard and is wonderful but shallow slogans don’t make it easier.

    I just finished watching "Escaping the NXIVM Cult" on Netflix. Although I enjoyed it I believe the documentary left out some very important details.
    1. How were they able to compromise a Hollywood actress?
    2. What is the significance of Raniere's relationship with the former Mexican presidents son?
    3. Why did they own daycare centers known as the Rainbow Cultural Garden?
    4. Why did the Dalai Lama agree to create an audience for Raniere?
    5. What does NXIVM stand for? It is obviously Latin and has a secret meaning like DOS did. Latin is the language that Catholic priests use to preform exorcisms.
    6. Finally, why did he constantly refer to himself as a devil/demon?

    I believe this man was a very dangerous hypnotist who used his knowledge in the occult to brainwash and control vulnerable people. Mexico is one of the occult capitals of the world and Raniere's patent descriptions are known for researching those with "lucifarian" tendencies. I am not a QAnon fanatic but I do believe there are some serious questions that need to be answered. His parents also need to be investigated so we have a better understanding of his upbringing and what pushed him into combining occult knowledge with psychology.

    Really interesting series. Very well filmed and edited. It's yet another quintessential example of Hollywood liberals completely unaware of what a bunch of easily manipulated, out of touch rubes they are while participating in some of the most heinous acts imaginable all while laboring under the delusion that they are "good people" who are "on the right side of history".

    Amazed at how many people were drawn in. The original message of finding joy in your life and meaning is a good one, appealing … then people got drawn into his deep and dark side.

    I heard the echo of a man saying "you branded my wife" and my first thought was why did she allow herself to get branded at all, women are not children we have to not oddly forget that
