I followed RH with a viewing (finally) of "Exit through the Gift Shop." I love the title almost more than the movie, because it says so much to me. I, like many I'd imagine, am not a fan of the way amusement parks give you an exciting and fun experience, and then rob you of it by commercializing that experience as you exit through their gift shop. I would think that my irritation at that commercialization is only a fraction of the anger these street artists feel at their craft being hijacked by an opportunistic weirdo.
Count as of today in The Challenge: 25 out of 56 films seen, 4 categories viewed in its entirety. Seeing "True Grit" will help me close off 6 more categories. I'm not sure why I'm delaying viewing that particular film.
