Exit Through the Gift Shop or How a Moron Can Be a Well Known Artist.
First of all we have to make clear that this film is not about Banksy (although it contains some very rare and interesting footage of him "working"). Better than that this film is MADE BY Banksy himself! So be prepared for something really fresh. Second of all, this film is not even about street artists in general. It's about a man that tried too hard to be one. So be prepared for something entertaining. Best of all, this particular "artist" is actually an idiot so be prepared for something funny as hell. This movie is following a guy who accidentally got himself into the world of street art, not as an artist (he can't even draw a single line), but as a watcher. During the finale you will find out how an outsider moron, without working at all, can be a well known artist pissing all over the street art. I don't know if this is a vendetta for Banksy or he was just wanted to restore street art's "honor" from guys like Mr BrainWash (my God...). All I know is that I'm thinking this movie over and over for the past three days and being an "artist"(I hate the term ...whatever) myself, I can't forget the moment, laughing about this Terry guy when I realized that I'm actually laughing about myself. If you like Art and if you like Movies, this one is both.
