I watched Exit Through the Gift Shop. Amazing post-modern documentary concerning street art. I would love a triple bill of art docs featuring this one, My Kid Could Paint That, and Orwell's F for Fake. That would make anybody's head spin. All three look at the incredibly thin line between authenticity and outright scams in the art world, to the point where the line often disappears altogether. Gift Shop looks at some pretty cool people, but ultimately ends up being about images being drained of all meaning. In the end it's always the rich that give value to art and the rich that get screwed by any kind of fakery.
