Critic Reviews for Sheriff
An admirably realistic portrait of police life, pointedly different from the sensationalism of TV's Cops.
Sheriff may have a point to make about the impact of family, roots and religion on the changing face of rural America, but the film, while admirably restrained and competently made, is too polite to clarify that.
Kraus seems determined to juxtapose the serenity of Hewett's downtime with the thrills of the dirty work, but as seen in the film it's all the same.
Not only do you feel like you know Sheriff Hewett, but you realize that fighting crime is more problem-solving than gun-slinging.
Kraus' short, no-frills documentary is a model of fly-on-the-wall filmmaking.
