Exit Through the Gift Shop
Banksy is the world famous street artist, who is known for his interesting, shocking, ironical and extremely social works – from the rat with a brush to the kissing constables. This documentary was supposed to be about Banksy, but it has turned into a much deeper thing. The plot is extremely complicated. The film tells about the artist Mr. Brainwash, who decided to practice street art. Firstly, his aim was just to film how other artists go on streets. That all changed, when he made friends with Banksy, and decided to do art himself. Mr. Brainwash is surprisingly talented and clever, but over the time he begins to copy other works, thus he turns creativity into the “gift shop”. Banksy shows up in this documentary with his face covered. Also, you will see a lot of famous artists, like Space Invader and OBEY. And, of course, there is a lot of street art and humor in this film.
