About the film:
Madonna's directorial debut, FILTH AND WISDOM, is a hilariously sexy tale of three roommates who must delve into mischievous and naughty behavior in pursuit of bigger and brighter futures. A Ukrainian immigrant, A.K. (Eugene Hutz), finances his dreams of 'trans-continental superstardom' with his band, Gogol Bordello, by turning tricks as a role-playing cross dresser. As A.K. literally whips the privileged of London into shape, he also secretly pines for the object of his affection, Holly (Holly Weston), an aspiring ballerina looking for her big break while moonlighting as a slippery stripper. Meanwhile, Juliette (Vicky Mclure) steals medicine from her pharmaceutical job in hopes of quenching her dreams of helping Africa's youth. FILTH AND WISDOM is every bit as erotic and playful as it is poignant and touching, revealing the universal struggles we all face in our pursuits of happiness.

First off, great review. I think the great thing about "Exit Through the Gift Shop" is that all of the quteoisns about whether or not this is a hoax or not is essentially irrelevant. (Sure, I'm as itchy to know the truth as everyone else, but the point remains the same either way.)It works as a scene-of-the-crime graffiti caper and it works as an expose on the gullibility of LA art-world vultures and the ludicrous commercial appeal of senseless, vapid works. Strangely enough, it's also likely to provide some of the best laughs of the year.
