Banksy: The Man Behind the Wall by Will Ellsworth-Jones; Seven Years with Banksy by Robert Clarke – review

12 May 2012 4:13 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

A sceptic and a devotee struggle to reveal much of note about the notoriously elusive graffiti artist

When Robert Clarke first caught sight of the then unknown Banksy in a New York flophouse in 1995, it was like one of those revelatory occasions in Hollywood biblical epics when the shadow of the saviour, whose face we are not permitted to glimpse, falls onto the ungodly. "Lo and behold," says the quivering Clarke, "he was framed in the office door and a radiant light was coming off him."

"No, no really!" he adds, but the disclaimer doesn't dispel the religiosity of the encounter. Clarke rises and follows this nondescript fellow from Bristol, who dematerialises so mysteriously and leaves behind him only prophetic daubs on the sides of buildings – anti-capitalist slogans, stencilled caricatures of greedy corporate rats, the Mona Lisa wielding a bazooka and Queen Victoria being orally pleasured by a lesbian attendant. »
