Mexican director Michel Franco’s thriller, the 2020 Venice Film Festival prize winner, is a shocking and horrifying film, but it’s the kind one hopes will shock and horrify the right people.


It all starts promisingly for Marianne (Naian González Norvind), the daughter of a wealthy businessman. She’s about to get married in Mexico’s city-center house designed by her architect brother (Diego Boneta): all those glass walls, reminiscent of the signature home in Parasite, are perfect for glimpsing protesters outside.


The scene is set for a sly satirical farce about class division, and keeping up appearances when your privileged lifestyle is disrupted. The clock ticks, the plot thickens, and then — bang — a gang of protesters scales the house’s garden walls, and we are suddenly watching a gleefully violent home-invasion shocker.


New Order’s nihilistic ethos makes for tough viewing, yet its an uncompromising vision of a world where brutal deeds don’t always result in positive change; one that acts as a warning of the danger of underestimating the capability of societal structures, determined to protect the interests of a select few, whatever the consequences. Once you’ve seen New Order, you’ll never look at green paint again without shuddering. (Jack Whiting)
