Point and Shoot

Critics Consensus

Thrilling and thought-provoking, Point and Shoot captures one man's fascinating -- if troublingly narcissistic -- "crash course in manhood."

  • Marshall Curry's documentary is like a cross between The Motorcycle Diaries and Walter Mitty with some Lawrence of Arabia thrown in for good measure.

  • VanDyke likes dressing up in military fatigues and playing with guns, to no useful effect other than filming it all in one long selfie on his camera.

  • It isn't convincing.

    January 15, 2015 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • The film dismayingly replicates VanDyke's blithe US-centric world view

    January 12, 2015 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • In addition to being a knotty psychological portrait, this raises some tough questions about America's presence in the Middle East and the influence of social media on contemporary politics.

  • For better or worse, this is an affluent American's view of the world, and in the post-mortem interview segments, director Marshall Curry does little to broaden the conversation.

    The strange tale of a man who wanders into the Middle East and becomes engaged in battle during the liberation of Libya. An unusual gentleman with an unbelievable tale.
