Exit Through the Gift Shop
Reviewed in June 2010
Director: Banksy. Documentary about Thierry Guetta, an untrained filmmaker and artist who follows a retinue of famous street artists for years with his camera, before making his own play for stardom in the art world. Narrated by Rhys Ifans. Interview subjects include Thierry Guetta, Banksy, Shepard Fairey, Debora Guetta, Space Invader, and Borf.
Twitter Capsule: Some familiar ideas and a thin base, but Thierry Guetta marks a new species of layabout obsessiveness.
