Banksy says his movie is real, nominated for top British film awardStreet Art // Wednesday, 22 Dec 2010
Exit Through the Gift Shop continues to have a strong year, as Banksy's film was nominated by the London Critics' Circle for the Breakthrough British Filmmaker award. Not bad for someone who came in halfway on the project (or so it seems). And on that front, Mr Banksy says the film is entirely true.
As Banksy told blogger AJ Schnack of All These Wonderful Things: "Obviously the story is bizarre. That's why I made a film about it, but I'm still shocked by the level of skepticism. I guess I have to accept that people think I'm full of shit. If the movie was a carefully scripted prank you can be sure I would've given myself some better lines," Banksy says.
That is the price of entertainment.
