rossRoss McElwee is a rare bird:  he's an intensely personal documentarian who has actually been successful enough to keep making films without going broke. Though one can't imagine that he'll ever get rich off of his work, he continues to be lauded by critics, and to be recognized at film festivals. His most famous work, Sherman's March, won the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance in 1986, and Bright Leaves opened to wide acclaim last year.
