Our latest episode centered around the representation of art and artists on film is a double-header with a special focus on the topic of artistic credibility. In one corner, and new in theaters this past weekend, is UK street artist Banksy’s filmic debut Exit Through the Gift Shop, a reality-bending doc/mockumentary that we will attempt to review without spoiling te peculiar experience of actually watching it. In the other, Paul Schader’s 1985 drama Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters, which juxtaposes various aspects of the controversial author/actor/activist Yukio Mishima’s insanely tumultuous existence.
