Matthew Vandyke is a very particular kind of fool—the kind who believes that because he was born an able-bodied white American man, he is owed an adventure, even though he doesn’t want to do the hard work and preparation to earn the quest he embarks upon. (Think Grizzly Man’s Timothy Treadwell or Into the Wild’s Christopher McCandless.) In the beginning of the documentary Point and Shoot, Vandyke explains that as an adult man, he grew tired of having his mom do his laundry for him, so he bought a motorcycle and embarked on a long, aimless journey across Africa and the Middle East. Vandyke filmed himself incessantly, imagining himself as the hero of his own movie. Eventually, he bumbled into a calling as a soldier in the Libyan resistance against Muammar Gaddafi. Point and Shoot is a well-crafted documentary about an endlessly frustrating subject. Vandyke gushes about his quest for adventure with all the earnestness of a 12-year-old boy, but he barely seems aware of the fact that his six-month imprisonment in a Libyan prison caused an international incident, let alone the distress his “adventures” caused his friends and family. Director Marshall Curry deftly weaves Vandyke’s own footage into a portrait of a man who is maddeningly unaware of his own shortcomings. recommended
