“A genuinely hip, thought-provoking work of art disguised as a doomed documentary resurrected.”~Aaron Hillis, Village Voice
Aroview: A would-be filmmaker's documentary on renegade street artist Banksy is turned on its head, becoming an expose of the contemporary art world and the commercialisation of graffiti art.
Starts out rather flatly as just another street level amateur doco, but evolves into carefully constructed and quite spectacular artistic coup, propelled by a surprising central character who is oddly lovable despite himself. The result is pure Banksy, and works as an extension of his street art - sly, ironic, pertinent, and thought-provoking, yet still defiantly accessible, and all orchestrated under his signature shroud of mystery. And that makes it very, very cool.

5 stars (Exceptional) This is Banksy through and through, from the dark sense of humour, to the sarcastic portrayal of critics and artists alike. One of this year's films you must see. ~Tom H
4 stars (Very Good) Banksy proves himself a smarter and more interesting artist than his street art suggests, his cleverly metafictional doco interrogating what constitutes art and how it's valued with a wry sense of humour and a vibrant aesthetic. ~Anon
Special Edition includes exclusive Banksy-designed ‘2D’ glasses, an Australasia-only collectible art card and a sticker.
