I’m currently tuned in to Sherman’s March on the Discovery Times channel. What I expected was another retrospective on the Civil War (a topic I never tire of). And, what was described on DTMS’s website was: “Ross McElwee sets out to make a film about Northern Civil War General W. Tecumseh Sherman. While retracing Sherman’s 19th century march through the South, McElwee begins to shift his camera lens onto a succession of Southern women he meets along the way.”

What an understatement! NO – what a pervasion! Transcribed from my DirectTV online guide: “Filmmaker Ross McElwee meets eight women in an odyssey subtitled ‘A Meditation on the Possibility of Romantic Love in the South During an Era of Nuclear Weapons Proliferation.'”

Now he’s at a girl’s school – what he calls “the cradle of southern womanhood.” Ick!

Oh, my fuckin’ gawd! I might be more receptive to this if it was presented honestly.
