The Banksy Job

November 201779 minutes

In a small square off Shaftsbury Avenue in central London a ten-foot statue is illegally erected. Entitled ‘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 (calling themselves ‘ART KAIDA’) pull up with a flatbed truck and cart ‘The Drinker’ away. This documentary is the definitive account of what happened then, now and next. Playing out as a heist movie, screwball comedy and documentary all rolled into one big paint splattered ball, The Banksy Job is about art, crime, authentication, ongoing feuds and a familiar statue that, when it is reintroduced to the marketplace, could be worth Millions.
