Movie Recommendation – Exit Through The Gift Shop


I couldn’t sleep last night so I decided to watch a movie on Netflix. Browsing through the documentary section, I found “Exit Through The Gift Shop”. The movie initially focuses on street artists (graffiti vandals), but halfway through, turns the lens on the documentary maker himself. I don’t want to give too much away, but let me say that I had minimal interest in this movie when I turned it on, almost hoping that it would make me fall asleep, but I ended up thinking it was brilliant. I’m still thinking about the movie today and I’m thinking the movie itself might be an elaborate hoax, but I’m not really sure what it is, I really liked it though and think you should check it out. Also makes you think about art and what makes it good, what makes it expensive, and what art is real? These questions aren’t posed in a serious manner through the movie, they just bubble up from an easy to digest cocktail of blind ambition, luck, and follies.

Thanks mom for an excellent dinner last night!

Thanks Edman the nice text message last night!

Thanks Dalia for sneaking into my bed in the middle of the night and kicking me repeatedly in the ribs.
