I was lucky enough to catch a pre-screening of Banksy’s documentary Exit Through The Gift Shop, which opens today in selected cinemas (see if your town has it playing!) Are you familiar with Banksy and with the street art movement? You should be. If not, and you just enjoy art in general, you’re definitely going to want to check this out. I’m also convinced that pretty much anyone would enjoy this film and the story. It’s light and playful, it’s interesting to see how these elusive street artists work, and it’s also satisfying to hear Banksy speak (even if his voice is disguised) because it turns out he’s sarcastic and humorous as hell (of course).
Also I just found this article about the interesting aspects surrounding the production of the film, and it gives a good run-down of what the film’s about. If it’s playing near you, take a cute girl on a date and go see it. The more people that go see it during this limited run, the more likely it will be released to a wider audience.
