"Exit Through The Gift Shop" is a documentary about art and artists and the art world without being like any other documentary about art that I have seen.
The film's focus is on street artists but the essence speaks universally to artistic success, integrity and creative process in art. The characters are fascinating and the story has unsuspecting twists. "Exit" does a great job of simultaneously stirring creative juices while challenging views of ownership and artistic authenticity.
Bonus: getting a glimpse of Banksy, and it truly is only a glimpse regardless of how some of the trailers look, sweetens the deal for a fan like me.
