Exit Through the Gift Shop: The renowned, outlaw British graffiti artist known as Banksy makes a stunning film debut with the tale of his own interaction with a French videographer in L.A. It intrigues and baffles at the same time, and lingering questions about its origins, along with its inherently subversive spirit, should keep filmgoers poring over it for some time to come.
