The Age has Banksy’s first interview which is pretty funny.
He say’s: ”Making a film isn’t as much fun as it looks. I spent a year in a small, windowless room watching footage of sweaty vandals falling off ladders over and over again,” he says. ”If I make another film it’ll be called something like Kate Moss Undressingand maybe then I’d take more interest in the camera angles.”
So the premier is at the Acmi cinema on the 6th of June at 2pm. Then from 5pm there’s a bunch of graffiti artists gathering around signing some Melbourne street art book, which could just be seen as signing their signatures.

Pictures On Walls have 300 free tickets to go see Exit Through the Gift Shop, the graffiti art movie. The link is here
The ‘computer’ will randomly allocate who gets them. This must be the same random ‘computer’ that allocates Banksy prints on their site. They have such high demand that you can no longer just buy them when they come up.
They have a nice disclaimer on the email:
“Please note: This offer does not include travel expenses, overnight accommodation in a hotel of your choice and £500 spending money.
The film has a fifteen certificate.”

Described variously as ‘The World’s first street art disaster movie’ and ‘a cautionary modern fairy tale . . . with bolt cutters’ Exit Through the Shop is debuting at the Sundance Flim Festival. Supposedly it see’s banksy’s first silverscreen appearance, but he could just as easily be fucking with us.
From his publicict comes this quote:
“Ladies and gentlemen, and publicists:
Trying to make a movie which truly conveys the raw thrill and expressive power of art is very difficult. So we haven’t bothered. Instead, this is simply an everyday tale of life, longing, and mindless vandalism. Everything you are about to see is true, especially the bit where we all lie.
Thanks for coming, please don’t give away the ending on Twitter. And please, don’t try copying any of this stuff at home, wait until you get to work.”
See the trailer on his website: BanksyFilm

Brett Easten Ellis’ book The Informers is now an all-star cast movie. Directed by Aussie director Gregor Jordan who did Two Hands and Ned Kelly, its apparantly a bore-fest of eighties culture-nostalga. Intent on stripping all vestiges of relevance they have cut the whole undercurrent theme of vampires (Legion) from the movie. Clearly a hideous mistake. Apparantly the only reason you might go so it is for Amber Heard’s complete inability to keep her clothes on.
One review I came across summarised it as: ” flat as the Hollywood sign, with beautiful young people, all blonde, mostly naked, trying desperately to get up the energy to order something else from room service.”
While on the toilet it just occured to me that it must the first time Kim Bassinger and Mickey Rourke have been in the same movie together since 9.5 weeks. 23 years ago. I feel old.

I can confirm that the first UK viewing of the Hunter S Thompson documentary Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr Hunter S Thompson by Alex Gibney will be at this years London Film Festival.
Other films that will be on include Oliver Stone’s biopic of Bush, simply called W and Steve McQueen’s Hunger, a biopic of Bobby Sands.
But the highlight for me is by far Gonzo. Times have not been updated on the bfi website yet. It runs from Oct 15th, if that helps. When I have ‘em, I’ll post ’em.
