exit"Exit Through the Gift Shop’’ is a conceptual Chinese box: a documentary about a filmmaker that’s directed by the subject the filmmaker was too inept to actually make a film about. To translate: Banksy, the anonymous British street artist — or soulless graffiti punk, depending on where you sit — got so fed up with an eccentric Frenchman named Thierry Guetta following him around with a video camera for years that he (Banksy) decided to make a movie about him (Guetta) instead. Not only that, but he (Banksy) told him (Guetta) to go try his (Guetta’s) hand at street art if he loved it so damned much. ( Dont miss this! The film debuted at Sundance, and is hitting a theater near you this week.
