If you love modern art – particularly the street art variety – of which my husband is a huge fan, you must go see the new documentary (or perhaps a mockumentary) of Britain's most famous and elusive street artist Banksy.
The film chronicles the history of street arts emergence and eventual acceptance as “the real thing” through the video camera of an eccentric Frenchman who may or may not be a real person.
Exit Through The Gift Shop was a huge unexpected hit at the Sundance Film Festival and it is building a cult following in limited release across the US.
It gives a great insight into the artistic process while at the same time showing how commercial the world of art can be. It is a “do not miss” even if modern art isn’t your thing.
