Exit Through the Giftshop – Banksy

If you haven’t seen this, you have to. I saw it a few months back in Cardiff and was fascinated, easily slipping from laughter to curiosity and back. You simply have no idea whether it is a prank, a mocking documentary or a genuine documentary. The story is so credible and yet amusing that it mustn’t be true. However I think it is. I think Banksy understands the fickle and mutual masturbation ring that is modern art and uses it to bast all the targets particularly the art world in gentle ridicule.

Watch it and see and click the title for a Wall Street Journal article about the film.
