Saving Banksy is one of my favorite movie from year 2017. I have good news for lovers of Documentary cinema. I know it gets a lot of stick for being the mainstream popular movie, but honestly I can not think of anything wrong with this movie online. Saving Banksy filled me with difficult to explain energy got me so immersed in it. The direction is sublime. Excellent photos, tempo and editing. Great actors and great story. However, I think that well-chosen actors and an interesting script are not pushed to the background by music, because a good movie consists of many great parts. I bought this movie in blu-ray quality last time, so I decided to upload full movie here.... Show more
