Wenders once again brings his obsession with omniscience to the big screen in this ambitious but incohesive film. When a mysterious government file detailing a project to place LA under satellite surveillance is dumped into his E-mail, slick Hollywood producer Mike Max (Pullman) becomes the target of this new technology and is forced into hiding. Now that this formless threat has manifested itself in his life, Max must reevaluate the significance of America's preoccupation with violence — a fixation from which he once profited. The End of Violence raises some thorny questions about popular culture and its commodification of the violence that threatens to throw our everyday lives into disarray, but the examination of the tiny connections and disruptions that can occur between wildly different people is the film's most intriguing asset.
