New Order

New Order ★½

I can't do any better than CJ saying "First half: 4, second half: 1" except knock each down a half-star. The sub-Haneke bullshit of the second half attempts to implicate all but just reduces itself to pointless nihilism, and by only really caring for its 1% characters it undercuts its thesis of the rich and poor becoming the playthings of real power in treating the latter as either an intemperate mob or tamed chattel in the periphery.
