Little did he know that this act of vandalism would spark a chain of events that includes one of his rats being removed from a wall, Museums ignorantly turning down a free Banksy street work, and a NY gallerist who has made it his business model to remove Banksy street works from all over the globe doing whatever it takes to get the rat in his possession.

Banksy is one British artist. He does not show his face. Yet the documentary starts with one bald bespectacled white man who talks about a generic "we". Is he Banksy? Who cares! The producers have somehow missed captioning that footage. Than the audience gets some captions, but with slogans. Like "Their art is now being removed from the walls..." Oh, so this is something new. Before graffiti used to be framed and put inside the dining room. Oops! That is happening now. And the removal has been done before. Anyway, I kept watching this junk hoping to see how the producers of this piece are saving Banksy. That proved to be misleading too. What a waste! The boring parroting of "the profit is bad" Christian dogma, propriety is anything the speaker want to assume, etc.
