I am not really a documentary person, but I was extremely excited when I found out we would be watching Exit Through the Gift Shop. It is an unconventional film, to say the least, and really cool to watch. Although I don’t necessarily condone graffiti, street art gives a city character- for example, New York City would not be the same without the countless spray-painted brick walls, buildings, and other public structures. I loved that the person filming (I can’t remember his name right now) followed the artists as they worked. He risked his life climbing on top of buildings and risked his reputation by breaking the law, and he still did it, all for his film. These artists, while vandalizing property, are speaking to the public through their work, as is the filmmaker.
