Critic Reviews for Banksy Does New York

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (3)

  • It's downright playful, in fact, funky chic and cheeky. Somewhere, Banksy is smiling.

  • Reveals a provocative social experiment and raises questions about ownership of public art.

  • The talking heads can't tell us much, but Moukarbel makes deft use of crowd-sourced footage to convey the wildly different ways New Yorkers engaged with the works.

  • Banksy -- like most ruffians who took to scrawling on public property and fleeing the police -- has a strong anti-establishment tone running through his work, and his best NYC work is reliably cheeky.

  • Made for the smallscreen (but don't hold that against it), this is an enjoyable romp through Staten Island, the Lower East Side, inner Manhattan and beyond, and is essential for any Banksy devotee.

  • Moukarbel's straightforward film is more domesticated than the work it profiles, but it's a dutiful document of an event that, despite Banksy's fame, remained on the periphery of the art world establishment.
