Rating:
R
Sherman's March: A Meditation on the Possibility of Romantic Love In the South During an Era of Nuclear Weapons Proliferation is a one-of-a-kind documentary directed by Ross McElwee. The film was made in 1986 and incorporates a style similar to that of cinema verite. McElwee grew up in the South and was always fascinated by the Civil War Union general William Tecumseh Sherman of the "March to the Sea" campaign. He wondered about the effects such a legacy of a man had on Georgia. But just as McElwee was about to begin filming his movie, his long-term girlfriend broke up with him. Strangely enough, he was unable to separate his personal matters from his work, and the film's focus shifted into a film about himself, the women he encountered throughout his life, and religion. However, he did not completely forget about Sherman. He did include some biographical content regarding Sherman. Sherman's March is undeniably probably one of the most realistic documentaries you will ever watch. A documentary film of this kind is so unrivaled it earned a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. See for yourself what all the fuss is about.moreless
