Top Critic
October 5, 2007
A tidy summary of the tragic mistakes made, and the brutal arrogance displayed, by the Bush administration in its prosecution of the Iraq war.
September 13, 2007
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.
September 7, 2007
A clear-eyed appraisal and condemnation of Bush administration war policies as seen through the eyes of people in a position to note the disastrous choices that left a country in chaos.
August 24, 2007
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.
August 17, 2007
Ferguson's case is so confidently built that it seems unassailable...
August 10, 2007
Its list of interviewees includes a number of insiders once deeply involved in the bungled aftermath of America's invasion of Iraq. It also includes some shocking, on-the-ground footage from the war that has not been seen elsewhere.
August 10, 2007
No End in Sight is the most coolheaded of the Iraq war documentaries, the most methodical and the least polemical. Yet it's the one that will leave audiences the most shattered, angry and astounded.

No End in Sight will leave you floored, agape and enraged anew.

Ferguson is admirably tenacious in assigning blame for the boneheaded mistakes that have doomed Iraqi reconstruction.
August 10, 2007
A raft of documentaries have come along since the start of the war, some of them accusatory, some investigative, some empathetic, nearly all of them skeptical. None is better argued or more searing than No End in Sight.
August 10, 2007
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.
August 9, 2007
Lucid, concise and devastating.
August 9, 2007
[No End in Sight] may be the best and saddest film of the year so far.
August 2, 2007
No End in Sight, the latest Iraq documentary, is the first to attempt a detailed historical overview and probably the only one with the potential to reach across partisan lines, a true rarity in the sphere of political filmmaking.
August 2, 2007
Although this is Ferguson's first feature -- he paid for it himself -- it's a masterfully assured piece of filmmaking.
August 2, 2007
Leaves you furious at an administration of armchair warriors, yet it offers the catharsis of cold, hard truth.
