Performers, Cast and Crew:
Hollywood Reporter - 01/26/2010
"Touching on contemporary cultural trends, the popular/high art divide and celebrity obsession while showcasing world-renowned artists, EXIT offers broad audience appeal..."
Wall Street Journal - 04/16/2010
"[A] deft send-up of artists, art critics and the commodification of contemporary art..."
Los Angeles Times - 04/16/2010
"Subversive, provocative and unexpected, EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP delights in taking you by surprise, starting quietly but ending up in a hall of mirrors as unsettling as anything Lewis Carroll's Alice ever experienced."
New York Times - 04/16/2010

Sight and Sound - 05/01/2010
"You leave this extraordinary film reeling, unsure what to believe....A brilliant and searching enquiry into the value we place on authenticity, and an equally serious enquiry into the nature, causes and purposes of art."
Total Film - 08/27/2010
4 stars out of 5 -- "Relishing ambiguity, Banksy has a postmodern ball with notions of art, fraudulence and authenticity."
Uncut - 11/01/2010
4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's a spoof, executed by Banksy and US artist Shepard Fairey, designed to illustrate the gullibility of the art world..."
