Exit Through The Gift Shop - a Banksy film

"The story of how an eccentric French shop keeper and amateur film maker attempted to locate and befriend Banksy, only to have the artist turn the camera back on its owner with spectacular results. Billed as 'the world's first street art disaster movie' the film contains exclusive footage of Banksy, Shephard Fairey, Invader and many of the world's most infamous graffiti artists at work. Written by Sundance Film Festival"

I didn't really know what to expect from this film/documentary before i went to see it. The caption above was all i had read about it and was pleasantly surprised when it turned out to be completely different yet completely accurate. 'Exit Through The Gift Shop' not only gives you an exciting look into an unknown world but introduces you to this truely unique individual Thierry Guetta. Who, rightly or wrongly achieves his own stature as an artist. Banksy has been extremely clever in making this film and has shown his audience just why he has been so successful.
