Guetta carries a camera wherever he goes and films everything. When he discovers that his cousin is the street artist ''Space Invader'', he becomes the unofficial documentarian of the rising street art movement, meeting and accompanying prominent artists like Shepard Fairey. He eventually sets his sights on the most famous and elusive street artist of all: Banksy. But everything turns around when Banksy inspires him to become a street artist himself under the name Mr. Brainwash.

* CameraFiend: Thierry films absolutely everything. At one point it shows that hundreds of unmarked tapes that he's filmed over the years.



* RealSongThemeTune / ThematicThemeSong: Richard Hawley's "Tonight The Streets Are Ours" isn't literally about street art, but rather about creative sterility. And of course, there's the chorus.

''Exit Through The Gift Shop'' is a documentary by French filmmaker/obsessive filming hobbyist Thierry Guetta about Creator/{{Banksy}} and the street art scene, unless it's a documentary by Banksy about Thierry Guetta.

* DocumentaryOfLies: The film's producers claim it's 100% legit, but it's still a matter of debate how much of the film has been fictionalized. Of course, that just makes the film more interesting.

Added DiffLines:

* SelfDeprecation: Early in the film, a masked figure who is identified as Banksy says "This was supposed to be a film about me, but I'm pretty boring so we decided to make a film about Thierry instead."

* SpiritualSuccessor: Some consider this film to be a successor to OrsonWelles's film ''FForFake''. Like ETTGS, it is a documentary assembled largely through found footage that analyzes the nature of art.
