EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP
A brilliant art documentary by graffiti artist Banksy that surprises the viewer with its humor and irreverence and absolute unpredictability. With total access, Banksy tells the inside story of guerrilla street art just as the barbarians breach the walls of the art world. Subversive and satisfying, the film drives an ice axe between the inspired and the phony. Artists and gallerists will particularly enjoy this film, but so will anyone looking for a wild ride through the contemporary art scene.
Two big, paint-spattered thumbs up.
