I've always wanted to see this and I really hope this movie wins the Oscar it was nominated for.

I hope it wins the Oscar, and I hope they send Thiery/MBW to accept.

Thought this was some jerkoff session over obey and banksy and that I was going to hate it but it was actually quite good.
wtf japan
Yep. Regardless of what you think about Banksy, this was pretty brilliant.

Great, amazing movie, but check this out:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mr._Brainwash

"Since the release of the film Exit Through The Gift Shop, a documentary directed by Banksy, there has been much speculation that the film and story of Mr. Brainwash are a hoax concocted by Banksy himself. When he is shown "working," he is only seen splattering paint using aerosol cans to haphazardly color images and clumsily attempting to paste up a poster. Other aspects of the Mr. Brainwash character seem deliberately comical, such as his being pushed in a wheelbarrow after supposedly breaking his foot."

"The whole thing, it's clear now, was an intricate prank being pulled on all of us by Banksy, who has never publicly revealed his identity, with Fairey as his accomplice. - Alissa Walker[12]"

There's even a lot of speculation that Thiery/MBW is actually just Banksy.

I just assumed as much, mostly because I don't see anyone who has theoretically held a camera for years manage to do so without developing any basic competency along the way, the bumbling mannerisms feel quite deliberate.

Works for me though, I see what they are getting at

Horsecock Johnson, M.D.
It didn't really concern me that it might be a hoax. It crossed my mind, but I just sort of chalked it up as part of what made the whole thing great (and so much fun). If it's a hoax, who got trolled hardest? If it's not, at what point did Banksy and Fairey et al decide to just run with it because it was more fun than trying to get away from Thiery? I could see elements of almost every artist in the film in MBW's work, are they all in on it? Or is that just another point being made - that all art can be reduced to component parts and reassembled, and Thiery just streamlined the process. It's actually similar to what Fairey himself has done since OBEY became an actual brand name. At it's core, it's what most of these artists based their style on - re-purposing images for their own artistic needs...

Since this is on Hulu, I wont be watching it interrupted by commercials. I'll be torrenting it. Thank you very much.
