New World Order

| |

The co-host of a podcast I do (The World of Cinema) turned me onto a documentary a few years back called Darkon, about live action role playing gamers in Baltimore.  I loved the film enough that I have kept up with everything that the two directors, Luke Meyer and Andrew Neel have done.  They pleasantly surprised me with a 2009 film they made call New World Order.  It follows a group of activists who are passionately committed to opposing the New World Order via protest and the spreading of information.  This film is essential viewing for all die hard No Agenda fans! 

The main focus of the film are the following individuals; Alex Jones, Jim Marrs, Luke Rudowski, Timu├žin Leflef, Jim Tucker, Jack McLamb, Mike Edgerton, and Seth Jackson.

If anyone can help me out with what they think the final shot of this film means in relationship to the subject matter, please let me know at theworldofcinema@gmail.com.

Is Scarface glamorizing cocaine? John says "No", while Adam says "Are you kidding me?!?".  They both agree that it is an American cinema classic.

Waco: The Rules of Engagement (1997)

| |

I was cleaning out boxes of old VHS tapes last week and ran across Waco: The Rules of Engagement, a documentary from 1997 from director William Gazecki (who will have other films as Monday Movies in the future).  I re-watched the VHS after digging out the old VCR and was astonished at the events that took place during the 51 day "stand-off".  If you are unfamiliar with this incident in recent Gitmo Nation history, then just put in this film and wait for you jaw to hit the floor.

Quick summary from IMdB:
"Using footage from the 51 day siege, from the congressional hearings afterwards, from people involved in all aspects of the siege, and from experts technical, psychological, and religious, the movie suggests that the Branch Davidians were not a cult, but a valid religious group practicing under First Amendment freedoms who fell victim to first the ineptitude of an ATF raid designed to garner the agency positive attention and later the cruel, methodical work of the FBI, who over-saw the murder of the Davidians and then quickly covered it up."

Endgame (2007)

| |

With the Builderberg Group 2011 meeting (or as Dvorak says, "Drinking Club") this past weekend, it seemed like a good time for NA Films to finally post an Alex Jones film as the Monday Movie.  I'm not the biggest fan of Mr. Jones' documentaries, however they have improved in production quality over the years.  Most of the conspiracy documentaries I've seen over the years seem to rely on the importance of their content to make up for lack of production value (ie editing, sound design, consistent titles, poor lighting, etc).  Anyway, Endgame: Blueprint for Global Enslavement is definitely a step in the right direction for Jones.

Arlington Road (1999)

| |

Just like the NA Films Monday Movie from 4.25.11, this weeks film falls into the category of "Eerily Creep" since the events of September 11th, 2001Arlington Road came out in the summer of 1999 and was considered a mild hit.  Jeff Bridges plays a college professor (of course he teaches a course on Terrorism) who suspects his new neighbors are involved in terrorism and becomes obsessed with foiling their plot.  In the era that Gitmo Nation finds itself in - that would be the "if you see something, say something" era - this film is far crazier than I thought it was when it first came out. 

The plot borders on over the top at some key moments and the musical queues are kind of eye rolling at times, but if you sit thru it with the memes of No Agenda in mind, the Lone Wolf/Homegrown Terrorism meme in particular, I guarantee you you will be entertained.  Plus, it has Joan Cusak at some of her craziest.  For die hard film geeks and fans of the second half of any NA show (AKA the Crackpot segments), the director, Mark Pellington, went on to make The Mothman Prophecies in 2002.
