Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The first film of its kind to chronicle the reasons behind Iraq's descent into guerilla war, warlord rule, criminality and anarchy, No End In Sight is a jaw-dropping, insider's tale of wholesale incompetence, recklessness and venality.

Based on over 200 hours of footage, the film provides a candid retelling of the events following the fall of Baghdad in 2003 by high-ranking officials such as former Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage, Ambassador Barbara Bodine (in charge of Baghdad during the Spring of 2003), Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson, former Chief of Staff to Colin Powell, and General Jay Garner (in charge of the occupation of Iraq through May 2003), as well as Iraqi civilians, American soldiers and prominent analysts.

No End In Sight examines the manner in which the principal errors of U.S. policy — the use of insufficient troop levels, allowing the looting of Baghdad, the purging of professionals from the Iraqi government and the disbanding of the Iraqi military — largely created the insurgency and chaos that engulf Iraq today.

Review:

"Prepare to be riveted. No End In Sight is without question the most important movie you are likely to see this year." Richard Schickel, Time

Review:

"An absolutely vital film....Exacting, enraging and revelatory....A clear, temperate and devastating account of high level arrogance and incompetence." A. O. Scott, The New York Times

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, The Chicago Sun-Times

Review:

"This powerhouse of a movie should be required viewing for every member of Congress. Lucid, without partisan rhetoric, and not to be missed." David Ansen, Newsweek

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, San Francisco Chronicle

Review:

"The movie is a classic. An extraordinary, elegant looking film." David Denby, The New Yorker

Review:

"Incendiary, meticulous, thoroughly engrossing and quietly devastating." David Edelstein, New York Magazine

Review:

"[No End in Sight] may be the best and saddest film of the year so far." Michael Phillips, The Chicago Tribune
