Damn! would be a more insightful condemnation of the exploitation process if it didn't reek so strongly of exploitation itself.

McMillan comes off as a perhaps-delusional opportunist determined to make the most of his 15 minutes in the spotlight.

Even at 73 minutes, the film is, well, too damn long.

The director ultimately treads too fine a line between exposť and cash-in, in part because he belabors his thesis.

The movie is padded with repetitive media appearances, fan videos, and the ramblings of a subject who may not have a firm grasp on reality.

Damn! clearly knows a thing or two about fameballs, but it leaves the rest of the heavy lifting to the viewer.

A telling glimpse into the future that yes, grassroots candidates with no money can aim big via the new power of the Internet, and renewed hope for basic human rights that have devolved into pipe dreams. Or in other words, better luck next time, Jimmy.

As a cautionary tale about too much too soon, Damn! works reasonably well.

By the end of this smart, subtle film by Aaron Fisher-Cohen, you realize that it's actually a deft look at flash-in-the-pan fame and the emptiness at the heart of it.
