What led Crash director Paul Haggis to leave the church after 35 years? Kim Masters reports on how Scientology aided his career—and then tried to milk his success. Maybe Church of Scientology leader David Miscavige had a premonition. Or maybe he’s not much of a talent spotter.

This was before Haggis, ...
