Scatter My Ashes At Bergdorf's review

Fashion counters and New York storeys...

Exploring the unique allure of New York department store Bergdorf Goodman, Matthew Miele’s sleek but scattered documentary is mostly pretty wrapping on a slim package.

Packed with interviews with everyone from Karl Lagerfield to Joan Rivers, it can’t winkle anything out of them except that the place is fashion heaven.

Once-upon-a-time tales about Elizabeth Taylor ordering 200 pairs of mink earmuffs, or Yoko Ono’s Christmas Eve $400,000 furs-splurge, can’t compensate for a lacklustre storyline about the famously intricate Chrimbo shop windows.
