What is exit through the gift shop about
Exit Through the Gift Shop by BanksyPresentato al Sundance, a Berlino e candidato allOscar 2011 per il miglior documentario, Exit Through The Gift Shop e un ironico gioco di specchi tramite il quale Banksy, uno dei piu misteriosi street artist del mondo, traccia uninedita storia della street art degli ultimi dieci anni e di alcuni dei suoi protagonisti piu bizzarri e anticonformisti. Sulla vicenda di Thierry Guetta, videoamatore ex gestore di un negozio di abiti vintage di Los Angeles, nasce, per usare le parole del regista, una pellicola dedicata a un uomo che ha tentato unimpresa impossibile: fare un film su di me, ma ha fallito. Dietro lintento satirico si nasconde pero un vero e proprio disaster movie sul mondo della Pop Art di oggi. Attraverso lobiettivo di Guetta e grazie allincredibile quantita di materiale da lui filmato, emergono la personalita dellartista di Bristol, la genesi dei suoi lavori e laffermazione di unidea militante e originale di democratizzazione dellarte contemporanea. Il DVD ha quasi unora di contenuti speciali piu un libro di 128 pagine intitolato We are all fakes!.

But the uncomfortable question persists: Is it real? In alternating interviews, the two recount the rise of anti-establishment vandals into the upper echelons of the art world, where their work quickly became commodified. Brainwash, a street artist phenomenon whose coming-out party in Los Angeles made him an instant — if completely derivative — success, and whose art now sells in the six figures. Is Guetta — who shot much of the footage — actually a paid actor playing a savant-like character invented for the project? Or, as some have speculated, is he Banksy himself?

What is art? And who gets to make it? For nearly two decades, enigmatic British street artist Banksy has challenged the rarefied art world, transforming public spaces into culture-jamming spectacles. And what a brilliant disaster it is. The film centers on the relationship between the elusive Banksy and Thierry Guetta, an amateur French filmmaker who owns a store in Los Angeles.
H e is Britain's newest national treasure: but he presumably won't be accepting a TV viewers' award from Ant and Dec any time soon, or making libertarian interventions in the smoking debate, or writing an annual Christmas Diary for the London Review of Books or posing alongside his mum with his CBE outside Buckingham Palace in his grey topper and chimp mask. Perhaps his mum would have to wear a chimp mask as well. Street artist, situationist and public-space japester Banksy is famed for his snogging coppers, simpering apes and for debunking Israel's new West Bank barrier with graffiti. Now he takes his career of radical cheek into the cinema with a wacky new "documentary", being shown this week in the director's own pop-up cinema in an underpass in London's Waterloo before moving on to more conventional locations. Like many of his graffitoed images, it's a kind of cinematic trompe l'oeil.
