Jim Fallows Recommends Chuck Ferguson's Movie, "No End in Sight: The American Occupation of Iraq"

James Fallows recommends Charles H. Ferguson's movie: "No End in Sight: The American Occupation of Iraq":

I found Ferguson's High St@kes, No Prisoners to be an excellent and thoughtful book.

Fallows writes:

James Fallows: Next week Charles Ferguson's documentary No End in Sight opens in DC and New York, followed in August by "select other cities." It is worth making time to see this film.... [M]any people will be tempted, as I was, to pause the trailer 16 seconds in, to stare in shock at how George W. Bush looked before this war began. That clip, from his 2003 State of the Union address on the eve of war, shows a man who could be the carefree young nephew of our current haggard president....

[The film] covers almost exactly the same terrain, including many of the same sources and anecdotes, as did my book Blind Into Baghdad. But rarely have I seen a clearer demonstration of how much more powerful the combination of pictures, sound, music, real-people-talking, etc can be than words on a page...
