Rehashes information you already knew and tries to inflate trivia into scandal.

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.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

A documentary that rues the fact that the US was not able to impose its will on the Iraqi people, but never questions the right to do so.

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

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.

...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's take has the precision and seriousness of purpose of a sniper's bullet while Moore's is a homemade shrapnel grenade.

Remember the scene in A Clockwork Orange where Alex has his eyes clamped open and is forced to watch a movie? I imagine a similar experience for the architects of our catastrophe in Iraq. I would like them to see No End in Sight.

No End in Sight makes one thing clear: Were it not so bloody, the war in Iraq would be destined to become a case study in the nation's business schools.

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.

...his [Ferguson's] brilliant and riveting documentary about the Bush administration's failures in Iraq, is at once the most devastating cinematic postmortem on America's colossal blunder in the Middle East, and the most sober.
Edward Douglas

Ferguson's debut doc is a brilliant piece of investigative journalism.

A thorough, level-headed examination of the Bush administration's failure to properly prepare for, and execute, the war.

While this incriminating documentary makes a convincing case against the White House, it arrives a bit belatedly, at a juncture when John McCain is just about the only loyalist left still sipping the Bush Kool Aid.

It comes across as something of a horror story: This happened, it was a fiasco -- and now there might not be any way of fixing it.

It's a furious, if quietly stated, indictment of the president and all his men in the debacle that our adventure in Iraq has become.
