Audience Reviews for Sherman's March

  • May 07, 2012
    Not only is Sherman's March a beautiful portrait of one man's personal journey through the strange tapestry of love and history, it's a wonderful snapshot of the American south in the early 80's. Heartwarming, hilarious, insightful, seemingly everyone in Ross's life is full of a kind of esoteric wisdom about life and existence. What makes any documentary great is how much personality a filmmaker can squeeze from the subject in a brief window of time. Ross McElwee's talent lies in his almost priestly ability to get people talking, about everything. This shy, unassuming man is like a great cosmic sponge who gets closer to unraveling the great mystery of woman more than anything else I've seen.

    (1986 Director: Ross McElwee) Documentary. Watching it now. review to follow...Watched this as an Instant View from Netflix but encountered difficulty completing it. Cute story of a young Southern male filmmaker being fixed up by his family who is trying to find him the right girl! Interesting & beautiful photography...but i had been hoping for some historical data about CIVIL WAR'S SHERMAN'S MARCH..oh well..
