Ross McElwee

Sherman's March (1986), by Ross McElwee, has the characteristic humor and narcissism of the skirt-chasing personal autobiography film, a genre that includes David Holzman's Diary (a mockumentary). The filmmaker, carrying both a 16mm film camera and audio recorder, is a one-man crew, so many conversations in the movie have a striking realness and intimacy.
