exit through the gift shop

I watched this a while back and simmered on it for a bit. While I'm ambivalent about "street art" as a movement, I like feeding new information into my brain. And I thought the movie wasn't really about street art, but about the nature of popular art, and how the things that you really care about in the beginning always die at the hands of mass culture somehow. But you can't be all, "I liked Nirvana before they were cool!" Because no one likes that asshole. It's a bit of a Catch 22.


Anyway, I liked Bansky immediately—he's got great critical brainwaves. Shepard Fairy seems a little wound up to me but maybe that's what it takes. Mr. Brain Wash can suck it.
