Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Exit could be a new subgenre: the prankumentary.
Fresh: The film is a curiosity. It's both an attempted documentary of an artistic movement and a bemused examination about why the movie failed in that mission.
Fresh: The brilliantly untrustworthy documentary Exit Through the Gift Shop reminds us that a film can start out in one direction and then change course so radically, it becomes an act of provocation unto itself.
Fresh: One of the best, most karmically satisfying comedies of the year, much to the chagrin of the people who are in it.
Saw it in the theater - beyond anything you have seen.
It is funny, interesting, informative and entertaining.
An entertaining movie in which the first half covers underground street art (Banksy and pals) and then the rise of an unknown artist (not Banksy) into the mainstream art world. It makes the viewer question whether the entire thing was a prank by Banksy and Shepard Fairey. It will make you laugh and question what is the price of "good" art.
Wait, what? We created a monster!
Funny actually, that mid-film plot twist gets better as the movie progresses. I guess the question of "can you just call yourself an artist and people will believe it?" is a resounding yes.
