Prankumentary

I don’t think Thierry played by the rules, in some ways, but then . . . there aren’t supposed to be any rules. So I don’t really know what the moral is. I mean . . . I used to encourage everyone I met to make art. I used to think everyone should do it. I don’t really do that so much any more.          

Banksy 

I just read a very interesting review that implied Banksy orchestrated the whole thing the subject of the doco to make a point. That the documentary itself was to show the hoax that is art. That the way we ascribe value to things is valueless. 

Yes, I can see how that would appeal to him. Curiously I also prefer this explanation, to one in which he is bitter. That probably says more about me than anything.
