New World Order


Only screened at the 2009 SXSW conference and once on the IFC Channel, New World Order (the movie) is a documentary based on individuals who’s lives revolve around the supposed New World Order, Bilderberg Group and 911 conspiracies. The documentary stars a select few from this “scene”, including their unofficial leader  Alex Jones, who has also made cameos in the independent films Waking Life and A Scanner Darkly.

In this documentary you will laugh at, laugh with, pitty and admire these individuals. I love this film because directors Luke Meyer and Andrew Neel do an incredible job of letting the films ‘stars’, and those that they encounter, hang themselves with their own words and actions. The confrontations they have, and their arguments with everyday people and politicians at all levels, are simply priceless.  It’s hilarious and brilliantly sarcastic. Well worth a watch!
