"Must End Soon" tells us that this is what is called in the trade a December qualifier. That means it's a movie put into limited release in December so it will be in contention for that year's Oscars. If there were already a standout sure winner in the feature length documentary category, the producer (in this case Arlo Guthrie) woulds have held off until 2006. Be assured that this movie will be in wider release somewhere down the line, especially if it garners one or more Oscar nominations.
