  • A lively and engaging film... doesn’t give more than a passing voice to Banky’s critics and skeptics... But the film does a fine job of getting at the tension that each day’s new piece inspired. Full Review

  • It’s a surreal world. But this much seem to be true: Banksy has art down to a science. Full Review

  • Provides an incredibly rich, thoughtful dialogue crammed into the documentary’s relatively brief runtime. Full Review

  • The talking heads can't tell us much, but Moukarbel makes deft use of crowd-sourced footage to convey the wildly different ways New Yorkers engaged with the works. Full Review
