Graffiti legend Banksy's first movie, Exit Through the Gift Shop, is about a manic French "filmmaker" Thierry Guetta (Mr. Brainwash), who found himself randomly (and luckily) placed into the newly thriving world of underground street art. A filmmaker he is not and an artist he is not. But that didn't stop him from taking thousands of hours of vital footage, or putting together one of the largest and most lucrative solo graffiti shows to date. This movie is both hilarious and disturbing, making you question what art is, and how it attains it's value. Please check it out.
