Banksy Film

“This is the inside story of Street Art – a brutal and revealing account of what happens when fame, money and vandalism collide. Exit Through the Gift Shop follows an eccentric shop-keeper turned amateur film-maker as he attempts to capture many of the world’s most infamous vandals on camera, only to have a British stencil artist named Banksy turn the camcorder back on its owner with wildly unexpected results.

One of the most provocative films about art evermade, Exit Through the Gift Shop is a fascinating study of low-level criminality, comradeship and incompetence. By turns shocking, hilarious and absurd, this is an enthralling modern-day fairytale… with bolt cutters.” – banksyfilm.com

  1. O filme era para ser realizado pelo brainwash mas este nao tinha o que era preciso e o Banksy teve de tomar as rédias. Claro que deixar o Banksy realizar um filme ia dar nisto… Algo completamente irónico! Aqui o Mr. Brainwash entra como o esteriótipo do artista de rua que se torna famosissimo sem ter qualquer noçao do que é na verdade a arte. Tal é possível porque o capitalismo quer e o capitalismo pode.

  2. No entanto tenho de criticar fortemente a tradução do título para português. Este perde completamente a ironia criada pelo artista/realizador, quebrando a ligação que havia ao consumismo. Terrível…
