This excellent writer has laid out a convincing case in what went down at The Viper Room, what lead up to it and why she firmly believes River was murdered and that the "accidental overdose" story is either untrue or only a part of the full truth:

My recollection is that he and Joaquin suffered serious abuse from religion and their parents. I will go and do some research. A quick perusal of what is on your link seems biased.

Hollywood does have Scientologists who will use the Kaballah and Garreth (or Garrett) Knight is one of the Scientology authors on the subject. But in my experience - including at the Viper Room and living in LA for years. There is enough backlash against Scientiology or such to make it safe for most people who wish to get into the movies. However, De Niro and Redford as well as others have left for good reason.

I think I went to the Viper Room after Phoenix did his drugs which I would attribute to the Church of God demonizing which is part of so many Christian cults and orthodoxies including Catholic exorcisms etc., which I have commented on many times here. I enjoyed talking with the star of NCIS New Orleans and meeting a Haida man seeking a job in Hollywood. Here is Joaquin who now seems a beautiful soul.

"Although he was born in Puerto Rico and travelled around Central and South America with his family, who were involved in the Children Of God community, Phoenix, the brother of late Stand By Me actor River, moved to LA when he was six, and has lived there ever since.

But the actor, whose mother worked as a secretary at a TV channel ("There's nothing less hippy than being a secretary at NBC!"), feels unqualified to judge whether the Los Angeles of Inherent Vice is true to that time.
"I don't know anything about the Seventies. I don't even know about the current time," says the 40-year-old, laughing. "I don't know that I interact with Los Angeles enough to have an opinion."

If it sounds like he's being stubborn, in person, it doesn't come across that way. If anything, he seems modest and is quick to say when he doesn't feel qualified to opine, prefacing answers by apologising if he's repeating what other actors have said, or if he sounds patronising."

River was mentioned here too:

People who surrender their former religious beliefs have got to be some of the smartest and bravest people in the world because they set out to find truth even while under the threat of "eternal damnations". George Carlin

Looks like an interesting site, but all the pictures are broken for me. It takes away from the research if you can't see the pics to which he is referring in his text.
