The Gates - Trailer Click Here to Subscribe: Our Take: From the great documentarian Albert Maysles (GIMME SHELTER, GREY GARDENS) comes this thought-provoking chronicle of environmental artist Christo and his wife Jeanne-Claude's 23-year quest to install 7,500 orange "gates" in New York's Central Park. When the duo first approach New York officials with the project they're greeted with skepticism and anger. However, 23 years later, Mayor Bloomberg greenlights the project, and suddenly everybody's got an opinion about it -- news commentators, art enthusiasts, and curmudgeonly old bench dwellers. Maysles delivers another delightful, carefully observed documentary about two artists who dare people to look at the world in new ways.
