Great documentary! Compelling and fascinating all the way through -- VERY thought provoking on rich topics, ranging from what art really is or isn't to opportunists and certain societal / cultural tendencies to be more conducive to those opportunists. Love how the story was told - not as you'd anticipate - and LOVED the first hand insight from the prolific Bansky and Shepard Fairey -- so cool that they just took this whole experience for what it was and gave a real account (rather than trying to distance themselves or throw some lame re-positioning around it). Really cool film, whether you're into the street art scene or not - enlightening either way.  As Lunch reviewer @ryguy4738  put it in his review, "It doesn't care if you want to see it; it doesn't care if you like Graffiti. It just exists, and it's open to anyone who will accept it for what it truly is."   That pretty well sums it up perfectly.

Instead, "Exit Through the Gift Shop" wants us to merely watch a man record art in the making. And we're even treated to his own rise to fame. Yes, they have made a good documentary for just about anything. Now they have made one for Street Art, and "Exit …
