Street-artist Banksy's devious film debut...

If Inceptions’s real/fake curveballs spun your brain, watch street-artist Banksy’s devious film debut.

Thierry Guetta, French would-be filmmaker, shadows street artists and documents their escapades; after befriending Banksy, he gets his own arty ambitions.

Thierry is Anakin to Banksy’s Obi-Wan, lost to art’s dark side: hype over talent. But is he for real? If not, who’s the joke on? Us for buying in? Relishing ambiguity, Banksy has a postmodern ball with notions of art, fraudulence and authenticity.
