Exit Through the Gift Shop, the first film directed by reclusive
street-art legend Banksy, is a little puzzle-box of a documentary. It's
perfectly designed and pitched to be enjoyable on multiple levels: on
one as an entertaining, illuminating mini-history of "street art" and
on another - one entirely more convoluted and entertaining - as a
light-hearted "up yours" to both street artists and their patrons.
Ostensibly (to take the film's word for it) Banksy's film came about
when he, as the premiere 21st Century graffiti art darling, was
approached by Thierry Guetta, a French-born Los Angeleno. Guetta wanted
to make a documentary about street art, and Banksy was the last major
figure whose participation he felt he needed, as an affable
personality, a love of video cameras and a chance relationship to
Invader, a French street-art pioneer who networked with other artists
like Shepard Fairey, had left Guetta with hundreds of hours of footage
documenting the birth of the art.
After tracking Banksy down and shooting him working, Guetta retired to
the cutting room. He emerged months later and showed it to Banksy. He
didn't like the film, a couple of minutes of which are excerpted and
are plainly terrible, and offered to take over Guetta's doc while
Guetta returned to Los Angeles to turn himself into a street art
sensation, named "Mr. Brainwash" or MBW. Transforming overnight from an
affable, helpful documentarian to a one-man hype-monster artiste, MBW's
enormous spraypaint cans, TV monsters and Warhol-style send-ups
captured the attention of the LA art crowd, who spent over a million
bucks on his stuff, much to the chagrin of Fairey and Banksy. Guetta's
film about Banksy changes into Banksy's film about Guetta and street
art, and the rise of a new unfortunate talent.
Except, as I and a lot of other folks believe, it's all made up. It's a
hoax, it has to be, it's too hilariously perfect to be anything but.
Banksy, as a street artist, has seen the perception of his works - by
design temporary, and by design defacements - change from graffiti into
art that needs preservation, that is cut out from walls and sold.
Banksy, in making Exit Through the Gift Shop with Fairey and Guetta has
found a way to deface, scrawl over and heap lighthearted disdain all
over both himself and the people who snap up his art.
It's spectacular, it's brilliant and all the more so in that it's still
a documentary, still a record of events. It's not artificial, not a
mockumentary in the way that Spinal Tap is. MBW exists, having been
created by Guetta or Banksy or both, and the film documents his
arrival. Exactly who it is that arrives is the film's mystery.
Exit Through the Gift Shop captures the birth of a prank, an elaborate,
entertaining gotcha that fits perfectly in Banksy's nose-tweaking,
politically-aware, cheeky body of work. Moreover, the film doesn't rely
on any rug-snapping-out to really work. It works if it's true, it works
if it's not, because it's a construction that's above all entertaining.
It's a glimpse, anyway, of a world that's built at night, by
streetlight, one that's fascinating even if it is in the middle of
pulling the wool over our eyes. It's genius, plain and (not so very
much at all) simple.
