The First Monday in May :- Watch The First Monday in May on Youtube on Fire,A behind the scenes look at the preparations for the 2015 art exhibit, China: Through the Looking Glass held at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, commonly referred to as the Met Gala, which has become one of the hottest tickets in town.One of the great things about movies is they expand our horizons – if we let them. Learning new things, broadening our world view, even discovering new interests. All can be benefits of watching a well-done film, regardless of the topic, but the individual Movie Fan first must decide to invest the time – and do so with an open mind. For many years, I didn’t care to see documentaries… until I actually started watching documentaries. I discovered for myself that they don’t just inform, but they cover many different topics, come in many different styles, can be extremely creative and can even be surprisingly entertaining. Before seeing “The First Monday in May” (PG-13, 1:30), I didn’t have much interest in the world of fashion. Afterwards, I still don’t. But that doesn’t mean that in watching this doc I didn’t learn new things, expand my world view, discover new interests, or appreciate the film’s quality. Au contraire.This documentary examines some important aspects of fashion against the backdrop of planning and executing the biggest fashion exhibition ever at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art. Fashion world icons including European designers such as Jean-Paul Gaultier and Karl Lagerfeld discuss whether high fashion is simply “applied art” or whether it can (and should) ever be considered its own category of art, on par with painting, sculpture and architecture. Then we see Andrew Bolton, curator of the Met’s Costume Institute, work with Vogue editor Anna Wintour (the alleged inspiration for Meryl Streep’s character in 2006’s “The Devil Wears Prada”) as they blur that line further with their annual Met Ball.
