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.

Up-and-coming filmmaking duo Luke Meyer and Andrew Neel's latest doc, New World Order, admirably humanizes the "9/11 truthers," a seemingly impossible task they accomplish handily by never condescending to or patronizing their less-than-credible subjects.

A timely, provocative, vital and eye-opening 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.

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

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.

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.

An unrelentingly tedious documentary.

The directors never bother to delve into why these men need simple answers, and avoid complications at all costs.
