Exit Through the Gift Shop: You need to Watch it NOW!

If you are interested in graffiti and business or street art and like interesting, eccentric and fascinating people (well of course you do you read my blog after all!! haha kidding) then you need to watch this straight away. It's one of my new favourite films. It's a very unique film and you even get an insight into the mysterious Banksy it will be going on the quirky film list. I found it VERY inspiring indeed and I just fell in love with the personality of Thierry, he's brilliant and I want to meet him, more so than Banksy, although the film leaves you in a state of mind wondering if this could actually be Banksy? or they work together - Food for thought anyway...
Thierry Guetta

From wiki "Exit Through the Gift Shop: A Banksy Film is a film directed by Banksy that tells the story of Thierry Guetta (Mr. Brainwash), a French immigrant in Los Angeles, and his obsession with street art. The film charts Guetta's constant documenting of his every waking moment on film, from a chance encounter with his cousin, the artist Invader, to his introduction to a host of street artists with a focus on Shepard Fairey and Banksy, whose anonymity is preserved by obscuring his face and altering his voice, to Guetta's eventual fame as a street artist himself."
