A diffident 25 year-old Marylander with OCD, Matthew Vandyke seems an unlikely guerilla. Yet when he sets off on a motorbike journey across Africa he finds himself joining the fight against Gaddafi, an experience he records on his video camera.
Reality television, social media, computer games and the Arab Spring collide in this disturbing profile of OCD narcissist Matthew VanDyke, who views himself as a latterday Lawrence of Arabia. But this self-shot study of wayward American manhood lacks editorial integrity.
A strange story that's no less disturbing for its unbalanced telling.
