Saving Banksy is the story of one misguided art collectors attempt to save Banksy's famous "Haight Street Rat" from destruction and the auction block. His efforts to save the Rat are met with threats from city officials, snubs from museums and a flurry of six-figure offers from art dealers eager to cannot to get their hands on the painting. Saving Banksy is a rare backstage look at the elusive world of Street Art and Graffiti. The films narrative is driven by multiple perspectives from Street Artists who paint graffiti illegally, and from art dealers who remove their graffiti from public walls for profiteering purposes. Saving Banksy opens by serving it's plot up for debate. "What would you do if you found a million dollar Banksy spray-painted on the side of your house?" Since the birth of modern graffiti, Street Artists and graffiti writers have embraced the brevity of their public art. Their public work has always been subject to destruction by property owners, law enforcement, and other graffiti artists. However, with Street Art quickly becoming the hottest commodity on the auction block, these artists are rethinking their public art work in an effort to outsmart the commercialization of graffiti. Saving Banksy features interviews with some of the top names in Street Art and Graffiti including Ben Eine, Risk, Revok, Niels 'Shoe' Meulman, Blek Le Rat, Anthony Lister, Doze Green, Hera, and Glen E Friedman.

After viewing this movie, you'll be wondering how the hell it was possible for a film crew to make such an amazing documentary. We were not disappointed, the film is breathtaking, it is a must see! Everyone who is interested in the artist and his work should watch this film!

There is no way that this film could be made in today's society. The "homeless" in the movie are not "haves" but "have nots". They are the unsung heroes of the modern world. This is a movie that should be in every film school. It is a must watch for every film lover.

A great documentary. Why does this matter? Because people take great pride in their work, their work being a tribute to themselves and their own creativity. This documentary exposes what a tremendous work of art Banksy is. We're reminded that he is an anonymous artist with a massive following of fans. There's a great deal of symbolism and hidden messages. There's a lot of sex, drugs, and nudity. And that's just a few of the many beautiful scenes that come out of this. You feel for the man. The documentary is well done and is a great way to see the man himself.

This is one of the most incredible documentaries I've ever seen. From the very beginning of this project, I was enthralled by the excitement, the film-making and the beauty of the images. The documentary is made by a documentary maker, but it's not a documentary. It's a documentary on the processes of documenting a group of graffiti artists. And this documentary is the story of one of the most interesting, vibrant and diverse groups of artists I've ever seen. It's about the concept of "big art", about the influence that the likes of Banksy, Banksy and Banksy's collaborators have had on the art world, about the influence that the legal system and legal system have had on the artist's lives. And it's about the artists themselves. This is an amazing documentary that will captivate you, that will fascinate you, that will make you feel good and give you a better appreciation of the culture of graffiti, of art, of art-making, of graffiti art. And if you haven't seen it, you should. You should watch this documentary. It's the best documentary you'll ever see. 10/10

What a great film. In the very near future, all but one American city has been deemed in serious trouble by the federal government. The government, and the banks, are literally in control. In a very short time, Banksy has begun his tour of destruction. Banksy's works are being stolen, Banksy's works are being sold for a pittance. Banksy is almost completely unknown outside of the US. We have witnessed his pieces at the Smithsonian, at the Natural History Museum, and now at the Rijksmuseum. This documentary gives us a glimpse into the world of Banksy, and the people who see his work, and are inspired by it. I love this film. I was shocked and very excited to see the work of Banksy at the Rijksmuseum, and the only thing I can think of that could be better is if I had never heard of Banksy before. This documentary shows us the people who are inspired by Banksy. People who are inspired by his work and his passion for art. This documentary tells us a story of a very talented artist, who has an incredible story to tell. This documentary is not only a documentary, it is a tour de force. I loved it, and I hope that it inspires many people to see this documentary, and to learn about Banksy. I highly recommend this documentary, and hope that it will inspire many people to see this documentary.

Banksy's collection of paintings are for sale on a website. It's a bit of a challenge to get to know the man behind the art and you don't have to be a fan of the artist to appreciate what's on show. If you are a fan of the artist then you should see this film. You can't see the collection without knowing who Banksy is. I've always been a fan of Banksy and I had no idea he was from the UK until I saw this film. I thought I would be the only one and yet I was one of the first people to see the pictures on the website. I have always been interested in the artist's work. It's interesting to see his work because it's very unique and different to anything else out there. The film is interesting to see the different things that he's been involved with. His main art is all done on the internet and it's very interesting to see how he's gone about the process. It's not always clear who's doing the work and if he has done it on a big scale. The film shows how Banksy works. It's a very interesting film and the film also shows the artists work in progress. You really need to be a fan of Banksy to enjoy the film. It's very interesting and informative. The film is very informative but you need to be familiar with the artist to enjoy it. You need to understand how Banksy's work comes about. I'm glad that I watched this film and I'm glad that I understood how the process works. It's very interesting and I would recommend this film to anyone.

I just watched this documentary on Netflix and am still trying to figure out how this film will end. I am amazed that this film will end in a way that feels complete and it does feel like a documentary, but I can't say I can think of any documentary that is as unique as this. The film has many elements that were necessary to the story, but some are even more interesting than others. For example, the interview with Kevin Gausman and the dialogue between him and his son is amazing. This film has a very simple narrative and the film makers do a great job of not trying to explain everything that is going on. The last 15 minutes or so of the film are almost pure narration and that is a nice change from the usual cinematic dialogue in documentaries. As a filmmaker myself, I feel like the film makers did a great job of editing the film and keeping the audience on the edge of their seats. The film makers also did a great job of creating an image that is so unique and inspiring, it will stick with you for a long time. All in all, I highly recommend this film to anyone who loves documentaries or anyone who is just interested in the history of art.

I've been looking for this documentary for about a year now, and finally got to watch it today. It is an interesting and original look into the world of Banksy, his inspirations, his process, and his struggles. Banksy is not just a street artist, but an individual that is so much more. This documentary follows him from the beginning of his early street paintings in Amsterdam, to his early times in Paris, and then to his early experiences in New York. He is in the early stages of his art career, and the documentary is dedicated to his late years. The film takes you through his work, from his childhood in the Netherlands, through his early success, through his early struggles, and through his death. It's a very engaging look at a person that is unique, interesting, and even inspiring. The film is very funny, and at times, it's hard to take your eyes off the screen. I loved the interview with his mother, and how her words spoke so much to the viewer, but also how her daughter's words spoke to her. This documentary is well worth watching.

I went to see this film last night, and it was the best film I have ever seen. I can't even remember what I saw, but I don't remember the ending. This film made me cry, it made me laugh, it made me feel really great. It made me want to create more of what I saw in the film, and make the world a better place. I have never left a movie theater feeling this way, and I can't imagine why. It was so sad to see that one of the characters in the film died, it made me feel so horrible. It was so powerful and so beautiful. I don't think anyone should ever feel bad for what they see in a movie, and this movie did a good job of that. The movie did a good job of telling the story, the acting was good, and the direction was good. I feel that this film is a must see, I think everyone should go see this film, it is amazing. I hope that everyone who sees this film will feel the same way I did, and I hope that everyone who sees this film will feel the same way I did.

I had the pleasure of seeing "Finding the Banksy" at the San Francisco International Film Festival. It was an incredible experience. It was a wonderful representation of what the documentary film is all about. The movie took me to new and interesting places, and it was an extremely exciting experience. I can't wait to see it again. I hope this film is shown at more festivals and other events around the world. I recommend this film to anyone who is looking for a documentary to watch.

This is one of the best films I have seen in a long time. In the UK, we are inundated with news and documentaries about Banksy, yet the guy is mostly invisible to us. We see his work on a weekly basis, but what we don't see is the true purpose of his work. In the US, there is a movie about Banksy, and it's not quite as good. What's more, it's very dark. We see the story of a guy trying to get a piece of his art back, but the film is too long and the conclusion is too obvious. "Tearing Down Wall Street" has the same problem, but it is much more interesting and is worth watching. "Tearing Down Wall Street" is like a Banksy film without the real art.

I can't believe that so many people don't like this documentary. I feel so bad for the people that haven't seen this yet, it's so real and so funny. I just wish I had seen it when it came out! So many people that would have been never heard of the guys that made the movie. I also really enjoyed the editing and the shots. It's very original. It's probably one of the best documentaries I've ever seen.

This is a great documentary about the history of Banksy, the creator of the world's most famous and acclaimed graffiti artist. The filmmakers spent months interviewing Banksy and his close friends and family members and we learn about his career and influences. The film is very informative, even if you are not a fan of Banksy or graffiti, you'll learn a lot about the man behind the genius that is Banksy. The documentary features interviews with Banksy, his family and friends, and his former girlfriend. The documentary also includes many interviews with the filmmakers and some of Banksy's fans, the director, and a variety of artists and collectors. In addition to being informative, the film is very entertaining. The interviews are fun and interesting and the filmmakers do not shy away from Banksy's controversial artwork. The film is filled with interesting facts about Banksy's career, influences, and many other interesting things. It also has a lot of personal stories about Banksy and his childhood, which is very touching. If you are a fan of Banksy, you should definitely watch this documentary. I highly recommend it to anyone.

I am not going to lie, when I first saw this movie, I was not sure how I would react. I was excited and did not know how to feel. When the movie ended, I was completely stunned. I was speechless and felt like I had never felt before. The movie is not only a great movie, but it is a great lesson. It is truly inspiring to watch. Every single person who watched this movie has an amazing story to tell. Whether they are young or old, people all around the world are inspired by this film and are proud to be part of this amazing story. This movie is truly amazing. The acting is incredible, the soundtrack is amazing and the cinematography is amazing. It is truly one of the best movies I have ever seen. People have been very surprised by the quality of this movie. Every single one of the actors in this movie have never done anything else in their lives. I would recommend everyone to watch this movie. I hope this is the start of a whole new trend for people to be able to make a movie and be recognized for their work.

I remember when I first saw the movie "A Night at the Opera". I was only a child and had no idea what I was in for. I was in awe, and I think that what I saw in the theater was nothing short of an awe-inspiring experience. But I had no idea how it would change my life, and in fact it made my life a whole lot better. I have watched the movie about a dozen times, and each time it has made me laugh, cry, and feel so inspired. The movie is truly a masterful piece of art. The DVD is a must for anyone who wants to learn more about the world of Banksy. I would recommend watching the movie as soon as possible. If you like the movie, you will like the movie. If you don't, you won't. You will just have to be a little more understanding and kinder to the man who created it.

Cease and Desist notices the BBC's decision to use the name "Woolwich" for a scene in this documentary. However, there was no reference to this to the audience at the screening I attended. It is important to note that the "Cease and Desist" notice was not a formal ruling of BBC management, but rather an opinion of a staff member on the subject. I think the public at large would be better served by viewing this film. In the end, the real villains of this film are the people who benefit from the use of the name "Woolwich".

All the negative reviews and bad press are true. The documentary is not about the film itself, but about the people behind it. The documentary does not dwell on the meaning of Banksy's work, but the impact of his work on the artists, both directly and indirectly. It also highlights the mental and physical stress of being in the spotlight of such an incredible public and the life-long repercussions of his work. Banksy's work has always been controversial and this documentary does not attempt to justify his actions, but it does attempt to document the impact and legacy of his work. The documentary shows the pain, anxiety and exhaustion that he must have felt, and the sheer frustration and fear that he must have felt for so many people he had not known in his short life. His work will live forever, but the impact of his work on the people around him will be something that will never be forgotten.

I am going to go ahead and say it right now, I was not prepared for the experience of watching this film. I have been a bit of a Banksy freak for a few years now and have been so close to the edge of my seat on a couple of occasions, but never had I felt this intense a desire to follow his work. This film will make you think about your relationship to graffiti and paint as well as your life as a society. I hope this movie does for Banksy and graffiti as a whole. I am in awe. The film is a wonderful mixture of humor, art, and hope. The director is incredibly talented and it is no surprise that he was chosen for this film. The cinematography and editing is also wonderful. The film is more than just a documentary on the subject of graffiti and graffiti culture. It is a great insight into the human condition and what can motivate someone to become a graffiti artist. I highly recommend this film. It has great potential and has captured my attention.

This film has absolutely NO musical soundtrack whatsoever. In fact, it's made entirely out of home video footage and stills. It's the true story of a man who didn't get the reward he deserved, and he spent over a decade and a half fighting his battle to get it back. The man's name is Banksy, and he is truly a legend. The film is short, but very well made. It really does a great job of illustrating the lack of reward in the system, and the horrible things that go on behind the scenes. The documentary was really something. I can't say I really understand what he was trying to say, but I really do think that this film is really worth a watch. It is also very funny, and in the end I would say that it is a documentary about how art and money can get mixed together in a certain way. I can't really recommend this film enough, it really is a must see.

When I first heard about the Banksy and his life story, I thought he was just a kid who got famous, but the more I heard, the more I wanted to know more. The film "Banksy: Inside the Mind of a Street Artist" has a few cool facts about the artist and it makes you wonder, "What would happen if someone wanted to live forever?" But it's definitely not an education, it's a look at a real life story of a true artist. This film is for people who are into street art and have a love for film, it will definitely inspire you to get more involved with your local art scene.

The power of this documentary is what makes it so unique. It will bring to light the unique story of the artist Banksy and how he was able to take over his own personal city and became the most successful street artist in history. The documentary is just the tip of the iceberg. The real story of Banksy is what makes this film so powerful. The documentary is not a documentary. It is a short documentary that tells the story of Banksy and his amazing journey. The documentary is perfect for anyone who wants to learn more about this amazing artist and his amazing story.

I just watched this film, and am just as amazed as everyone else. I can't believe how much this documentary is being censored by the U.S. Government. Not to mention the damage it causes to the beautiful works of our great artists. This film is so important, and will continue to be important. There are so many people who don't realize the importance of this film, and the effect it has had on artists and the people. I will be making a big effort to watch it again, and share it with everyone I know. I urge anyone who is a filmmaker, and has the passion to create art, to watch this film, and spread the word. You will never be the same again, after watching this film. I have no doubt that this documentary will become a legend, and we will all be listening to this film for years to come.

I have been a big fan of Banksy since I was a little kid. I thought he was a very interesting person, and now I'm an adult, I've seen more of his work and his street art than I ever imagined. So this documentary was a real treat for me. I'm not a big fan of Banksy's, but this documentary had me at the edge of my seat. It was great to see him for the first time and even more so to hear him speak. The interview with Banksy was a great one, but I also thought that the interview with Amy Winehouse was one of the most moving interviews I've ever seen. I'd recommend this documentary to everyone, but also to anyone who wants to learn more about the man himself. He's a truly unique individual who I think deserves more attention. This documentary is definitely a must-see for everyone.

Amazing! This documentary is very well made and well worth watching. It doesn't seem to be overly political or pick on a particular country. It is very easy to understand and what the director is trying to show is a lot more than the news itself. The film doesn't focus on just the big stories of this year but also the many smaller things that makes up a great country and how some of those things affect people. It is very easy to understand the main points of this film and to understand the connection to the country that is being talked about. The film is also very well edited and if you get the chance to see it, I suggest you do. If you are new to this kind of thing, you will be amazed at how many different stories are shown. The film is very well made and the director really knows what he is doing and how to make a good documentary. There are many parts that I would like to have seen more about but overall it is very well done. I would definitely recommend this film to anyone who loves to watch a documentary about a country that they have never been to or to a person who wants to know more about their country. If you like documentaries, you will definitely enjoy this one.
