This is the inside story of Street Art - a brutal and revealing account of what happens when fame, money and vandalism collide. Exit Through the Gift Shop follows an eccentric shop-keeper turned amateur film-maker as he attempts to capture many of the world's most infamous vandals on camera, only to have a British stencil artist named Banksy turn the camcorder back on its owner with wildly unexpected results. One of the most provocative films about art ever made, Exit Through the Gift Shop is a chaotic study of low-level criminality, comradeship and incompetence. By turns shocking, hilarious and absurd, this is an enthralling modern-day fairytale... with bolt cutters.
A must see for Art lovers
- Exit Through the Gift Shop review by JD
I am not generally a seeker of Art or Arty films but this was absolutely fantastic. I never knew street Art could be so good and so premeditated. Banksy is the boldest political Artist imaginable. Painting a child being lifted by balloons on the Gazza Strip Wall while soldiers bear down is an inspiring feat. The picture of paradise seen through a hole in the wall was beautiful.
Mr Brain Wash is a product of our society but is not so inspirational; but without him the rest would be unknown.
