Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Love and alienation in the nuclear age"
‑ Louis Proyect,
"Piquant, hilarious social tapestry of the American South, warmly and creatively extrapolated from a filmmaker's romantic despair."
‑ Nick Davis, Nick's Flick Picks
"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."
‑ Leo Goldsmith, Not Coming to a Theater Near You
"Sherman's March is an extraordinary documentary by Ross McElwee that mixes American history, a romantic quest, and the search for meaning in the early 1980s."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"earns him a place as one of America's most unique, and treasured, documentary filmmakers."
‑ Christopher Null,
"McElwee asks us to reconnect not only with each other but with our human spirit."
‑ Ed Gonzalez, Slant Magazine
