Exit Through the Gift Shop
Stars: Thierry Guetta, Banksy, Shepard Fairey, Space Invader, Rhys Ifans
It's not hyperbole to label Exit Through the Gift Shop one of strangest documentaries to ever hit a big screen. Like Banksy, its elusive director/mysterious star, this energetically conceived look at the ever-changing world of underground street art is a complete enigma. Is it all the way real? Or is it an elaborate hoax put on by a self-indulgent artist shamelessly feeding into his own walking-question-mark mystique? We may never know, but at least Exit Through the Gift Shop is sufficient enough to justify multiple screenings and analytical focus.
