The State of Control
I watched this movie a few times, and I have met very few people who liked it as much as I did. I see it as an artful expression of all the critical thoughts in philosophy, sociology etc. that show how genocide, ultra-violence and fascist methods of population-control can develop out of all the promises of order, justice and peace the the modern state makes to its citizens. Also, the dialogue has absolutely superb moments, as when Mike the fugitive of the state says to his wife confronts his ex-wife with the words “Who can I turn myself into? Well I see who you turned yourself into…”. A lot of people seem to dislike the loose ends and unexplained shifts that the characters make – but I say, in that very absence of rigid structure the film makes a parallel to the manifest ambivalence of modern life as a citizen: Our greatest protector is also our greatest threat.

Know what to expect, and you’ll freakin LOVE this film
…or as I like to think of it, THE END OF VIOLENCE is the greatest scifi crime thriller that never was.

As always with Wim Wenders, the plot is fantastic. But, as always with Wim Wenders, the movie isn’t about the plot, and those who expect to be carried by the plot will be disappointed. In the same way WINGS OF DESIRE had a great plot about angels but was not a fantasy; in the same way UNTIL THE END OF THE WORLD had a great plot about a high tech dream machine but was not about technology; in the same way LISBON STORY had a riveting plot about a missing person but was not a mystery, here we have the same Wendersian formula which he pulls off flawlessly.

The plot, if you’re curious, is about a futuristic “God machine” that can eliminate people with the push of a button. Designed ostensibly for crime prevention & surveillance (the old “to protect & serve” – where have we heard that before?), it gets out of control and takes murder & corruption to the next level of clinical perfection. Caught up in the game is Mike Max, a movie producer struggling with his own intense xenophobia and paranoia, which, like a disease, he himself spreads to society through his films.

That’s all I’ll say about the plot because (a) I don’t want to ruin anything, and (b) like I said, the plot is secondary. What’s really important, as you watch this movie, is to pay attention to the thought-provoking dialogue, the philosophical allusions and the overall metaphor of the situation. If you can tune into that stuff, then you’re set for a great experience.

I’ll give you just one example of the philosophy. There’s a scene early on where they talk about the “observer effect” (you might recognize it as the paradox of “Schr√∂dinger’s cat” which you can look up on wikipedia). This is the fundamental theme of the film: the idea that, even by “impartially observing”, we change the situation or in some cases destroy it. As one of the characters says, it’s like “flipping on the light to observe the darkness.” What a poetic & appropriate analogy.

This movie is choc full of that kind of stuff, and you may miss it if you’re expecting car chases and gunfire. No, instead you get the ultimate anti-violence violence film, and I gotta give Wenders a standing ovation on being the first director I’ve seen pull it off.

A lot of movies in the past have carried a message of anti-violence; yet the films sink to the thrill of showing violence themselves and often glorifying it (the biggest example would be Norm Jewison’s classic ROLLERBALL), and this becomes confusing if not outright hypocritical. But in this case, we get a chilling depiction of the epidemic of violence without showing any blood & guts to excite our savage instincts. It remains an intellectual film, not visceral. Don’t get me wrong; this movie is plenty suspenseful, and on more than one occasion it’ll have your heart flopping like an electrified noodle. But it’s all done by way of the mind. To me, that’s what makes this depiction of violence all the more effective & frightening: the way it’s so clean & neat like in a video game. And without any fuss, someone’s head could just go pop.

This is the best film I’ve seen in a while. I’m only taking off a few points because I wished it was twice as long & had more monologues, like some of the older Wenders films. But I have to say this film sticks to its objective and delivers a perfect product.
