Movie Info

Alex Jones is a radio talk-show host based in Texas who has attracted a passionate following for his commentaries in which he explains his belief that a powerful underground one-world government secretly rules the world. Jones contends that the attacks on the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, TX, were ordered without provocation by Janet Reno and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms to silence David Koresh and keep him from spreading his anti-authoritarian philosophy, and that the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, were staged by the government in order to strip American citizens of their freedoms in the name of security. Jones has followers and like-minded supporters around the world, and he and his compatriots have faced arrest and jail terms in order to spread the word by staging protests and setting up amateur surveillance operations to monitor the annual meetings of a Bilderberg Group, a private enclave of important figures in politics, economics, and world trade whom Jones (among others) is convinced pull the strings behind the New World Order. Does Jones know something most people don't, or are he and his listeners oddball conspiracy buffs who have come to believe in a bogeyman that doesn't really exist? Filmmakers Luke Meyer and Andrew Neel allow Jones and a handful of his supporters to speak for themselves in the documentary New World Order, which chronicles their ongoing battle against a movement most people don't think is happening. New World Order received its world premiere at the 2009 South by Southwest Film Festival.more

Critic Reviews for New World Order

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (4)

Instead of digging up and making sense of true information, it tracks half a dozen boring conspiracy theorists spouting balderdash and makes no effort to check out their cuckoo claims.

Top Critic

An unrelentingly tedious documentary.

Jones and his followers are an easy subject for ridicule, but Meyer and Neel opt for a more nuanced -- even sympathetic -- treatment of the group's ultralibertarian obsession.

Time Out
Top Critic

Neither a call to alarm nor a laugh-at-the-loonies yukfest, the doc charts a temperate middle course through its subjects' heated rhetoric.

Top Critic

New World Order essentially offers nothing 'new' on the topic, nor displays any concrete 'order' in structuring its haphazard collage of hit and run gotcha moments.

Full Review… | November 7, 2009

While I can't say I'm fully convinced the people profiled in "New World Order" are onto anything resembling "the truth," I will say again, there are some compelling truths to be found in the film and by the Alex Jones acolytes.

Audience Reviews for New World Order

I have a lot of my own beliefs about 9-11 and secret organizations with aspirations for global domination, but this film doesn't touch on many of them. Alex Jones is far too paranoid to be rational. You can watch him concoct stories right here in the movie; like the scene in the hotel room where the security guy knew his and the kid's name. His behavior there was straight off a 3rd grade playground. Luke Rudowski is the real deal, though. He's smart, committed and logical. People like Alex make anyone with doubts about who's running what look like nutcases. Fortunately there are those like Luke who show us to be normal. We need more Lukes, fewer Alexes. I also find it beyond belief that the same people who believe that 9-11 was an inside job also believe the Christ lie. Come on, guys, THEY'RE THE SAME PEOPLE! The highest reaches of Christianity, Judaism, Islam, and other great religions know their religions are made up. ESPECIALLY Christianity. It was stolen piece by piece from virtually every religion that went before it, and they still modify it to keep the faithful writing those tithe checks. The film has far too much proseletyzing and religion for me.
