Unlike Sherman and his reviled scorched earth mode of warfare, McElwee's chasse romantique is ultimately less effectual and usually ends in a nervous, frustrated goodbye.

An utterly charming docu, McElwee's personal essay-travelogue parallels and inverses General Sherman's march during the Civil war, centering on lost loves and new ones, shrewdly using the camera as a weapon and romantic device.
