Even now as media outlets post Banksy artwork sightings and Sothby's sell Banksy artworks for north of million Euros, the hype is profound and profitable. Tje film's footage contains behind the scenes of actual street outtings with Banksy, Invader even Shepard Fairey ( the real force whether it be tounge-cheek, behind much of Obama's underground success as a presidential contender). Absolutely fascinating from an outsider standpoint, and falls in the too good to be true section of the documentary stories (like the one about the video game, pac man guys.) DVD $26.99.

It's like getting asked on a date by a cute guy, only to find out you're his ugly friend's date. Be warned watching this may prove inspirational! Wonderful, very funny, yet important film. Is it documentary, art fraud, mockumentary, a work of performance art in its own right, the record of the emergence of this new style of art form? Is it real? This is a very good documentary, if one can really call it a documentary - more a film essay in the style of Orson Welles’ “F for Fake” - as one would expect from Banksy. Reviewed in the United States on October 1, 2011, Funny, sharply satiric documentary about the modern art world, especially. Jetzt online Stream legal finden! Wonderful, very funny, yet important film. None of the above? The movie itself is good, a very interesting window into the world of both street artists and obsessive human beings.

It definitely feels like a huge practical joke, and knowing what little I know about Banksy from the film and from what I've read about him previous to watching the film, it definitely seemed like something he would do. Thankfully Claude did so wonderful coverage of Banksy. The film is comedic, touching, honest, intellectual yet wholey accessible. Probably the best "discussion" of the definition of art I've come across. I laughed out loud more than once when Banksy was 'critiquing' his work - he has a wicked sense of humour. A journey to the centre of a man's troubled psyche and the revelation of his unconscious through his own art? Select the department you want to search in. Everyone is engaged and they always have questions, wanting to know more about the processes of the artists, how they can do this, etc. Other formats. Reviewed in the United States on December 19, 2010, Much like the elusive UK graphitti artist himself this super documentary, loosely focused on 'street art' is hard to catch. Seriously awesome film. This is a brilliantly and purposely misleading documentary. Amazing! Overall the documentary is superbly entertaining from a pure enjoyment standpoint, it's at times hysterical, and thematically mind-bending, thoughtful, and intriguing look at what is the real definition of art. Fascinating film. Blu-ray from $13.38. Reviewed in the United Kingdom on February 15, 2018. Thierry's journey wants you to rush to your computer, download and Photoshop iconic images, have them enlarged and duplicated and hurl oneself headlong to the nearest empty public wall in the dead of night with accomplisses armed with your stencils and spray cans as an act of public minded generosity, civil disobedience, blind vandalism and general rebellion against the State, power, authority and the banality of modern life! 4.6 out of 5 stars.

It also shows you how some artists use their art as a way to bolster or reinforce their ego, while to others it is a from of expression that they don't necessarily do for other people, even if it is in public. I feared this limit release and preordered, don't give up, keep checking here for it, it is worth it. (You can watch this for free with Amazon Prime). I'd highly recommend it, although it is on instant in Netflix independent genres I'd further recommend getting the DvD like we did, because it comes with Banksy decals & postcards also in the extras: the original movie the French "film-maker" (who is the film's real focus ) made before Banksy concludes the Frenchman may be mentally ill & made his own movie. Love this film! A fun set for an entertaining and provocative out-of-the-norm documentary. "...somewhat explained before Banksy turns tables and makes his own movie while making his own monster, turning. This movie asks the age old question "What is art?"

The film isn't so much as a documentary about Banksy but more the street art movement and in particular one strange individual with the moniker MBW. Shop owner Thierry Guetta's project to document the underground world of street art takes an unforeseen turn when he meets Banksy, who in turn films the shop owner's attempts to be an artist himself.
