Exit Through the Gift Shop: A Banksy Film

October 19, 2010 Neil

A documentary film centered around the colorful life of a French immigrant in Los Angeles, Thierry Guetta. Thierry is obsessed with filming, recording almost every minute of his life for years. In 1999, he came in contact with the new rebellious counter-culture artform, Street Art, that will change his life.

A brilliant film that will have you asking, “Is he for real?”  The film features famous street artists Shepard Fairey and Banksy.

Many says it’s another prank pulled by Banksy, a street artist known for his graffiti all over the world and most notably his West Bank Wall graffiti. It could even be the birth of a subgenre of documentary, prankumentary.

I’d say the first half of the documentary when Guetta was running around the streets of France, Los Angeles and London looked authentic. The remainder is an egoistic triumph of a prolific film-maker obsessed with street art and street artists.

    The most ideal factor is actually making sure you store the spoon at each
    end as well as simply permit the telepathic to wipe the center.

    I think everything published was very reasonable. However, what about this?

    wht if you composed a caychier post title? I mean, I don’t wish to tell you
    how to run your blog, but what if youu added a post title to maybe get a person’s attention? I mean Exit Through the Gift Shop: A Banksy Film is kinda boring.

    You could peek at Yahoo’s home page and ssee how they
    write news headlines to grab people to click. You might add a vvideo or a related picture or two to get readers interested abouut everything’ve written. Just
    my opinion, it would bring your website a little livelier.
