I screened Banksy‘s feature filmmaking debut, the documentary Exit Through The Gift Shop at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival. It’s now October and the movie still remains as one of my favorite films of the year. For the first time ever, The Simpsons invited an artist to storyboard the opening sequence of the animated series (yes, it’s still on television). The episode aired last night, and the opening sequence is exactly what you would expect from Banksy. In fact, it is so hilariously dark, I doubt 20th Century Fox will ever ask another artist to direct the opening sequence ever again. Watch the Banksy-directed opening after the jump.
