"The Profit" is the fascinating biography of a con artist who later founds his own cult, that later sets up itself as a religion. Sure, he has some problems from time to time (IRS, FBI, etc) but he is successful, i.e. he makes tons of money and brainwashes many people around the world. The concept used was the one used in "Citizen Kane", i.e. it starts with the cult leader dying and his life span of several decades is presented.
