Because of our screening Thursday at the Charles, I’ve been thinking a lot about this singular movie. It’s like nothing else I’ve seen because of the way it explores artists. It seems straight forward- an untrained hyper enthusiastic fan of graffiti art obsessively films some of the best artists in the world, but he only likes to shoot film, not edit it, so one of the artists, the elusive Banksy, finished the film.  (There are other surprises, but you should experience them while watching the movie.)  Months after it debuted at Sundance, no one can be sure what this is- what exactly is real ? What is art ? Those are of course the key questions Banksy has been forcing everyone to think about for years.
