Review
Aspirant and amateur French film-maker Guetta wishes to make a film about the successful street artist Banksy, but Banksy, aware of the failings of the film turns the cameras and makes a film about Guetta making street art.
Or does he?
The mocumentary makers pull off a coup halfway through and give the rug under your feet a sharp tug, in the process revealing the contemporary art world as a scene populated by venture capitalists and sociopathic svengalis.
And if you haven't heard of Banksy then you shouldn't be living in Bristol and, I hasten to add, that eons ago 20th Century Flicks itself turned down an offer from the Redland bred artist to decorate our shop exterior.
