You don't have to be in vogue to enjoy this stylish ride through Bergdorf's. It's a surprise package to die for. Miele and his virtuoso cinematographer, Justin Bare, show how fashion can be aspiration, a model for dreaming the impossible.
80
The energy in Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf's — what a great title! — is genuine, infectious and superabundant.
70
A lively, clever, fast-moving film that isn't overly reverential about its subject.
60
Fun and frothy, a fan's mash note.
50
If anyone in the store’s history ever had a bad experience there, you won’t find it in this movie.
50
Propelled by enthusiastic reviews, the entertaining but ultimately disappointing documentary will entice the fashion-forward and fashion-curious.
40
What interest Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf’s does generate comes from the sections devoted to a pair of staff fixtures: Linda Fargo and David Hoey.
40
[A] glossy, fawning valentine to conspicuous consumption.
40
This scattershot documentary — an undiluted advertisement for this temple of high-end consumerism — jumps skittishly from subject to subject, disjointed and repetitive for all but dyed-in-the-wool fashionistas.

Slant Magazine
Matthew Miele has made a department store of a documentary, stocked to the hilt with an obscene inventory of storylines, talking heads, and utterly tasteless choices.
