There's no shortage of opinion, but what Ferguson is aiming for in this fascinating 102-minute dissection is a professional critique of foreign policy.

A persuasive argument that the inception of, and response to, the Iraq War perverted America's ideals and intellect. Its moderate temperament hides obvious roars: Remembering outrage is all that will keep this from again occurring unopposed.

No End is Sight is the product of a calmly systematic desire for knowledge, and as such, does not offer solutions, only profound insight.

By the time No End in Sight gets to a late chapter titled "Things Fall Apart," you'll believe that call could have been made a long time ago.

Watching the film, which is well-organized but utterly artless, one wonders who, exactly, it's trying to sway.

Bleak, dry and marginally repetitive, "Sight" fails to answer with clarity why bad decisions were made.

The most important film of the year thus far and, more significantly, the most comprehensive, clear-eyed account of the Iraq debacle and the arrogance behind it that we have.

It's a film that only begins to take baby steps in telling what went wrong and how insane it is to stick with such a bad war policy.

...a movie that will make you angry or sad. It provides no escape or transport from, but rather deeper engagement with, the regrettably real world.

Ferguson consults not the administration's political opponents, but the very experts that the U.S. government selected and sent into the Baghdad fray ...

This is a movie about the very officials who boasted 'I don't do quagmires' (then-defense secretary Rumsfeld), but who hadn't actually done the planning or simple reading of other people's plans that might have avoided that very fate.

The movie's larger points are sobering and relevant, no matter how many times they've already been made.
