Exit Through the Gift Shop - Reflection.

The debut film of the infamous street artist, Banksy, is a tremendous documentary about a thrift shop owners (Thierry Guetta) compulsion to videotape his life which lead him to the artist and eventually videoing some of his work. The work that was filmed by Guetta was different to any work that has been recorded before because the artwork was illegal.  This film really grabbed my attention as it was completely new to me and I had no idea of these famous people (shocking I know). The artwork was amazing but the thing that engaged me most was the way it was all documented and the time put into this project for it to be produced into a short documentary. I would of loved to see the footage that was not a part of the final film.
