Director: Banksy

Keywords: Documentary

Banksy-created documentary details a French shopkeeper's attempts to locate the elusive graffiti art icon.

Billed as "the world's first street art disaster movie", Exit Through the Gift Shop follows eccentric French shopkeeper Thierry Guetta -- otherwise known as "Mr. Brainwash" -- as he endeavors to track down and form a personal connection with renegade street artist Banksy, running into a number of expected enigmatic quandaries along the way. Though Banksy himself has claimed the film to be a true-life documentary, numerous critics and observers have argued over its authenticity.
