Movie Review : Exit Through The Gift Shop

I recently watched Exit Through The Gift Shop, a film I had initially thought was going to be about the underground movement of street art focusing on the well known artist Banksy (as well as Space Invader, Shepard Fairey) but  I was surprised to find that the focus of the film was on Thierry Guetta (“Mr Brainwash“), a French videographer who crashed into the street art movement and became obsessed with documenting it. The trailer doesn’t explain much, but after watching the film, it created a lot of interesting topics of discussion focusing on street art/art value/making money.  And it was actually a little upsetting.  It’s an interesting documentary about quirky people, I recommend you guys checking it out if you haven’t already!
