I saw Charles Ferguson’s first film No End in Sight on a Sunday afternoon in August of 2007. I walked out of the theater in a haze of emotion, confusion and gripping anger. In roughly 90 minutes, the film lays out point by excruciating point why President Bush announced major combat operations were over in May 2003, and the troops are only now leaving in August of 2010. The film is a well-plotted, easy-to-understand visual essay about the cluster-fuck that is post-invasion Iraq. This isn’t Michael Moore.
Charles Ferguson’s next film is Inside Job, it premiered at this year’s Cannes Film Festival and will hit theaters in October. It deals with the financial meltdown in 2008.
