The End Of Poverty Reviews

February 10, 2010
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.

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.
