Who doesn’t love classics? Everybody does. To watch a film that came years ago and is still a treat to watch. The feeling is impeccable. There are many factors that make a film classic. Be it the characters, actors, story, visuals, aesthetics, or even music of the film. These films just move you in some sense. They impact your life and you accept them in your lives.
Below are some films which are destined to be classics.
1. Exit Through The Gift Shop (2010)
Banksy is a well-known graffiti artist whose work can be found on walls all around the world. From post-hurricane New Orleans to the Palestinian West Bank separation barrier. To evade prosecution, he guards his anonymity with his life. An eccentric French shop owner turned documentary filmmaker tries to track down and befriend Banksy. Only for the artist to turn the camera back on him. Banksy, Shepard Fairey, Invader, and a slew of other world-famous graffiti artists are seen at work, on walls, and in interviews. Banksy puts it this way: “It’s essentially the story of one man’s quest to capture the unfilmable. And it was a failure.”
