Exit through the Gift Shop is an amusing, engrossing look
at underground art. Banksy, the infamous
and shadowy graffiti street artist, directed.
It tells the story of Thierry Guetta (Mr. Brainwash), a French immigrant
to Los Angeles and his obsession with street art as well as his
eventual fame as a street artist himself. The film charts Guetta’s constant filmed documentation of his
every waking moment. The film
premiered at the 2010 Sundance Film
Festival on January 24, 2010, and was nominated for the Academy Award for
Best Documentary Feature.
