A tidy summary of the tragic mistakes made, and the brutal arrogance displayed, by the Bush administration in its prosecution of the Iraq war.

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.
Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel  full review
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.

Even dedicated news junkies will gain new understanding of a campaign with no end in sight.

Ferguson's case is so confidently built that it seems unassailable...
Terry Lawson, Detroit Free Press  full review
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.
J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader  full review
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.
Wesley Morris, Boston Globe  full review
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.
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times  full review
Lucid, concise and devastating.
Carrie Rickey, Philadelphia Inquirer  full review
[No End in Sight] may be the best and saddest film of the year so far.
Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune  full review
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.
