The Pickup Game

About the film

Inspired by Neil Strauss’ best-seller The Game, a little-known, billion dollar industry has developed that teaches men how to manipulate women into bed. What began as a few confidence-building techniques has grown into an international subculture in which alpha-male instructors teach misogynistic mind games and even coercion, all in the name of seduction. With unprecedented access to the world’s most notorious pickup artists, Matthew O’Connor and Barnaby O’Connor present a chilling look at men desperate to score, at any cost.

Director(s) Barnaby O’Connor & Matthew O’Connor
