The End Of Poverty Reviews

Even if you're convinced by the many well-spoken interviewees, the film's conclusion is almost as depressing as the historical indictment that precedes it.

Because Diaz constructs his movie like a classroom tutorial, we expect something more from him than an appeal to end privatization.

Why Philippe Diaz has titled his new documentary The End of Poverty? is unclear, because this guilt trip/history lesson is really about the beginning of poverty.

The End Of Poverty? offers simplistic answers to many of the most pressing questions of our time.

It's heartbreaking, of course, but also crassly manipulative and blandly shot, too.

For all his film's sober analysis, Diaz never loses sight of the human cost of global capitalism.

As a sign of the film's structural sloppiness, Cobb's cure for global poverty is nearly lost in a welter of unsourced stats and factoids.
