Banksy's - Exit Through The Gift Shop

Whether you think graffiti is pure vandalism or art born from the streets, this movie should make you think and maybe think again as you take a journey through the purveryors of "street art". Just read the synopsis about the film and watch the clip, its damn interesting to say the least.

"This is the inside story of Street Art - a brutal and revealing account of what happens when fame, money and vandalism collide. Exit Through the Gift Shop follows an eccentric shop-keeper turned amateur film-maker as he attempts to capture many of the world’s most infamous vandals on camera, only to have a British stencil artist named Banksy turn the camcorder back on its owner with wildly unexpected results.

One of the most provocative films about art ever made, Exit Through the Gift Shop is a fascinating study of low-level criminality, comradeship and incompetence. By turns shocking, hilarious and absurd, this is an enthralling modern-day fairytale... with bolt cutters."
