Has anyone else watched this? It's a "documentary" that Banksy created. He states in the beginning that he originally was going to make a film about himself, but "this guy" (the film's subject) was much more interesting. It's a guy named Terry, a Frenchman who moved to LA and has had a camera in some form attached to his hand for years. His cousin (or something) was "Space Invader," the street artist who started putting up mosaics of the characters from Space Invaders. From there, he gets interested in the street art scene, and his goal was to meet Banksy, which he does.

It was a good film, I highly enjoyed it. I don't believe a second of it, though. Still, it was an awesome movie, and I'm not sure if Banksy was making fun of street artists who have sold out (himself included), the people who are bying street art at ridiculous prices, or both. I'm leaning towards both.

I occasionally browsed through Rotten Tomatoes DVD listing and this gem popped up. I have yet to see it, but the trailers look promising.

It's on Netflix streaming & is pretty entertaining for a "documentary".
