Ah, Banksy. That unrequited love I have for him and his mischievous ways.
Those of you who have followed my sporadic and indeed eccentric posts know that I am a lover of street art, in all of its forms. I haven’t written about it in a while, but Banksy has changed that.
The notoriously private individual who has lauded us with his stencils for so many years now has made a film.
Oh yes. He has. EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP is a documentary/film about street art, of which Banksy is an expert. The film is basically the story of a French shop keeper who films his journey to find – and befriend – Banksy. Banksy apparently turns the camera on the shop keeper, and, well, you have to watch the film to find out.
It’s in limited release (bummer) but it will be in my area soon, so I will be sure to blog a review.
