Point And Shoot Review

Image for Point And Shoot

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.
