This Ain't California, Nebraska, Frozen: what to see at the cinema this week

This Ain't California | Nebraska | Frozen | Kill Your Darlings | Oldboy | Powder Room | Homefront | Getaway | The Patience Stone | Big Bad Wolves | Black Nativity | Floating Skyscrapers | Klown | Rough Cut | A Long Way From Home | Scatter My Ashes At Bergdorf's

This Ain't California (Tbc)

(Marten Perseil, 2012, Ger) 90 mins

Just as its East German teen subjects took skateboarding behind the Iron Curtain, so this "documentary" smuggles faked footage into its true 1980s history. The result is a fascinating parallel pop-cultural history with a moving (but imaginary) human centre. Working out what's true and what's not only adds to the fun.

Nebraska (15)

(Alexander Payne, 2013, Us) Bruce Dern, Will Forte, June Squibb. 115 mins

Stubborn old Dern and son take a quixotic road trip back into family, and American, history.

Frozen (PG)

(Chris Buck, Jennifer Lee, 2013, Us) Kristen Bell, Josh Gad, Idina Menzel. 108 mins

Disney's classy, sparkly assault on the Christmas holidays, with wintry vistas, musical numbers and a sister-powered fairytale.

New DVD Blu-ray: 'The Great Gatsby,' 'Pain & Gain'

Moviefone's Top DVD of the Week

"The Great Gatsby"

What's It About? Australian filmmaker Baz Luhrmann's reinterpretation of the famous F. Scott Fitzgerald Depression-era novel is a glamorous and audacious one. The film follows the original story of the Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio), mysterious millionaire who throws the most epic parties New York City has ever seen. His new neighbor Nick Caraway (Tobey Maguire) writes about the love and deceit surrounding Gatsby and his old love Daisy Buchanan (Carrie Mulligan) that spins out of control into tragedy.

Watch: Baz Luhrmann takes you behind the scenes of "Gatsby" (Video)

Why We're In: Blending the modern with the classic, Luhrmann's "Gatsby" both showcases the glitter and glamour of the 1920s alongside a modern pop music score. With extravagant CGI and music from Jay-z to Lana Del Ray, "The Great Gatsby" is unlike any of the film adaptations before it. While Luhramann's

Review: Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf's

Documentary films often tell us the facts about a particular subject. They can be political or religious, or perhaps based on an idea that most people cannot wrap their minds around. But sometimes, you get lucky and see a film that lets you behind the scenes of something most people only dream about. That's how I felt about Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf's, opening Friday in Austin.

I may not know much about fashion, but having a fashion merchandising major/style guru for a sister, I had a little bit of knowledge under my belt -- certainly enough to appreciate a good movie about fashion. The trailer had enticed me, clearly riddled with various designers talking about how getting to show their line at the esteemed Bergdorf Goodman's was the highlight of their career. Writer/director Matthew Miele takes his viewers not only into the heart of the store, but

Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf's, A (1 Percenter) Fan's Mash Note

Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf's, A (1 Percenter) Fan's Mash Note
At last! A documentary about that underexposed group: the 1 percenters in their lair. In Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf's, the storied store is presented in cinematic terms as ex-screenwriter Matthew Miele watches decorator David Hoey madly creating window displays of phantasmagorical "installation art" that moves. The film's climax is the famous annual holiday unveiling as the hoi polloi press their noses against the glass. Yet the long-term employees fascinate more than the clothes: They are beautiful gargoyles, true freaks of fashion. We don't get interviews with non-celeb shoppers of the reticent monied class, but designers Manolo Blahnik, Jason Wu, Patricia Field, and others each give their rendition of "What Bergdorf's Meant to Me." Vera Wang nails it: Being obsessive is a g...

'Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf's' review: Nicole Richie, Rachel Zoe and the Olsen twins take worshipful look at shopping mecca

  • Pop2it
It covers an entire city block of New York's Fifth Avenue, a Dover marble and bronze citadel of consumption at its most conspicuous. Bergdorf Goodman is shopping at its highest end, a fashion arbiter at the oh-so-exclusive retail level, the capital of aspirational America. From its exquisite designer salons to its ornate street level windows, ornate expressions of consumerism as public art, it is a monument, in its own way, to the American Dream.

"Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf's" is a love letter to this New York institution, a celebration of its place within the fashion food chain and those designers who know that when they've been accepted there, their fortune is made.

Filmmaker Matthew Miele has made a worshipful, often playful documentary about the history, the people, the couture and the class of this worldwide icon of money-is-no-object shopping.

Designers from Karl Lagerfeld to Isaac Mizrahi, Jason Wu to
