It’s fitting that Philippe Diaz’s film The End of Poverty? ends in a question mark as he asks questions and explores the history and possibility of ending poverty rather than telling you anything definitive. The question mark also serves as a question to the audience about whether or not they want to do anything to help end it. And after seeing the film you definitely are prepared to make better choices in your own life when it comes to solving the problems that create the disparity between the rich and poor. It does a great job of starting at the root of the problem of poverty, working up to the present day and keeping things as complex as they can be in a two hour film.
