Storyline

March 2004. The artist known as Banksy illegally erects a ten-foot statue in a small square off Shaftsbury Avenue in central London. Titled 'The Drinker', this sculpture is a replica of Rodin's 'The Thinker' - with a traffic cone placed on its head. The only clue as to who put it there is a stencil on the plinth that merely says 'Banksy'. Then, one day, in broad daylight, masked thieves pull up with a flatbed truck and cart 'The Drinker' away - a reporter from a national newspaper receives a ransom note from a man calling himself AK47, claiming to represent a group of 'art terrorists' calling themselves 'ART KAIDA' After several years back and forth between the media, Banksy and Art Kaida, it is alleged that the artist called Banksy 'arranged' for the statue to be destroyed by any means necessary... Now, after all this time, it seems that AK47 is about to breathe new life into the saga. Written by christine alderson

AK47´s Fifteen Minutes of Fame Have Now Elapsed
18 February 2019 | by skepticskepticalSee all my reviews

I decided to watch this film after seeing a couple of others about Banksy, including Banksy´s own Exit Through the Gift Shop, a mokumentary which I highly recommend. I was also intrigued by the stories of Beltracchi and Mark Kostabi. All of these people raise the question of what the difference between artists and con artists is supposed to be in the modern art world.

Although The Banksy Job was entertaining in a slapstick sort of way, this particular story struck me as considerably less compelling than the others. I am somewhat surprised that anyone should have decided to honor jokester AK47 with a film about his puerile dalliances with the art world. I assume that some of the ¨experts¨ interviewed were actors?
