EXIT Through The Gift Shop

If you haven't seen Exit Through the Gift Shop and have any interest in urban should watch it. The film is amazing and documents the life of Thierry Guetta, a psychotic "film maker" who follows the likes of Space Invader, Shepard Fairey and BANKSY himself. After years of following urban artists with his video camera, and a little help from BANKSY, Thierry becomes Mr. Brainwash, an overnight art sensation. When I first saw the film I was blown away especially because the last time I was in NYC I visited a Mr. Brainwash pop-up show without even knowing who he was. CRAZY!
