Banksy’s Exit Through the Gift Shop

British graffiti artist Banksy is perhaps just as famous for his anonymity as he is for the art he produces around the world. It is perhaps fitting that in his directorial debut the man turns the camera on to a French shop keeper who has filmed street artists in the city he calls home, Los Angeles, and across the pond in London. Banksy admits at one point in the film that he is not as an interesting subject matter for a full length documentary as the French pretender to his thrown and quite a few surprises unfold.

Exit Through The Gift Shop is by far the best documentary released this year and is in cinemas from April 16th.
