Product Description

Sheriff Ronald E. Hewitt keeps the peace in rural Brunswick County, North Carolina, whether it s hunting down an escaped bank robber, raiding a video poker operation, or recovering a stolen truck filled with ceramic lawn ornaments. At once fascinating and familiar, this slice-of-life documentary chronicles the everyday world of an everyday hero.

The unobtrusive cinema verité style not only seems candid and fresh, but also captures the tones and textures of the American South. At once brutal, bizarre, and funny, SHERIFF is an intimate portrait of an admirable blue-collar man and the first in the Work Series, a set of independent documentaries from director Daniel Kraus designed to create an on-going record of the American worker.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. The detail captured by Kraus's scrupulously neutral camera adds up to a fascinating, fully realized portrait of the man and the job. It's like an extended episode of COPS directed by Frederick Wiseman... and I mean that as a compliment on both counts. --Chicago Reader

Commendable filmmaking... an admirably realistic portrait of police life, pointedly different from the sensationalism of TV's COPS... Despite all the human drama going on around Hewett - including a brutal murder - Kraus refuses to be distracted from his portrait of Hewett's life. --New York Post

FOUR STARS... The editing and cinematography are artistic and there's an organic sense of humor that can't possibly be scripted. Educational, intriguing and fantastic, it produces a profound effect. --Film Threat
