Monday's Best TV - The Arabian Motorcycle Adventures: Storyville
By Tom Howells
“Movies shaped who I was,” states Matthew VanDyke, contextualising his time fighting with rebels in the 2011 Libyan civil war. It’s a theme returned to consistently in this masterful gonzo documentary, centred on his motorcycle journey through some of the world’s most dangerous territories. Both an affecting account of VanDyke’s existential pursuit of self-definition, and a visceral report on “the most filmed war in history”, it’s a dizzyingly brilliant work.
