Exit Through the Gift Shop may be a back-handed self-portrait, but it serves as a clear frame for Banky's ruthless imagination.

As insightful as it is funny. You'll be enthralled.

Banksy proves that his talents extend beyond the spray can to the movie camera.

The characters are as compelling as you will see in anything else. Banksy is his own antihero of the film, and Guetta is fascinating to watch in his obsessive glory.

Banksy exposes the con-job that is modern art for what it is.

Whatever your view of Britain's most famous street artist, prepare to be teased, provoked and possibly enraged by the release of his first movie.

Just as clever as the work of Sasha Baron Cohen, but not nearly as culturally worthwhile because it is not nearly as politically candid.

Energetic, exciting, entertaining, and at times illegal, Exit Through The Gift Shop is a wicked treat.
March 6, 2011
Those tricky questions that lie in the chasm between art and commerce are raised naturally through the progression of the narrative, whether that narrative is partially fabricated or not.

Curious docu about street artists with some strong language.

Since virtually anything can be considered art, the term has become virtually meaningless. This documentary proves it.

The behind-the-scenes insight into the techniques of illegal street art is fascinating, as is the art-market critique..
December 29, 2010
Illustrates how our insistence and abilities in judging and evaluating art are often arbitrary, contradictory, and idiotic.
December 24, 2010
It's funny, playful, and intriguing in a way that makes me want to see it again.

After all those debates about the meaning of art ... [who] would have thought that the best and most incisive comments on the argument would have come from street-punk Banksy?
September 30, 2010
Regardless of its motives, Gift Shop is a superb work, one that demands the audience ask questions that don't always go down easily...
September 5, 2010
A strange oxymoron of a film, like a straight-faced Spinal Tap or a Man On Wire for liars.
August 2, 2010
The street artist known as Banksy is witty, he's smart, he's subversive -- and he's compelling. So it stands to reason that the street-art doc he ostensibly hijacked would be all those things, too.

Confused yet? Good. Banksy probably wants you exactly that way.
