Exit Through the Gift Shop has arrived, and, with it, British street artist Banksy has entered the film world with a bang. Exit is a must-see for anyone who appreciates art at any level. Cancel any plans you may have that conflict and go immediately. For cereal. I guarantee you won’t be disappointed. Spoiling the documentary’s plot would a crime much more serious than the supposed vandalism it depicts, but, rest assured, it’s a reel doozie. The cast includes Shepard Fairey, most famous for the Obama print he’s allegedly being sued over, Banksy (whose mysterious identity remains wholly intact via camera angles, creative lighting and even voice alteration), a number of other notable graffiti and street artists including France’s Space Invader and LA-based newcomer Mr. Brainwash, who was recently commissioned to do a Warhol-like piece for one of the biggest pop artists on the planet, and lots of cops. Exit‘s month-long run at The Mayan is through, but it’s back for an uber-limited engagement at Auraria’s Tivoli. Enter Exit tonight.
Street art genius Banksy
You’ll thank me–bank on it.
