Close to hagiography-but who cares when faced with such an entertaining valentine as this.

No, it's not hard-hitting journalism about retail fashion or conspicuous consumption. It's more like a graceful authorized biography of an institution.

Even people who find fashion really, really interesting will be bludgeoned brain-dead by this fawning, attention-deficit infomercial of a documentary.

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.

There's probably a brilliant documentary to be made at New York department store Bergdorf Goodman. No such luck

A maddeningly unquestioning look at a retail citadel.

Fawning, but fun and fashion forward.

I imagine that watching a movie about Bergdorf's is probably a little like shopping at Bergdorf's. It may feel good in the moment, but in the aftermath, you start to feel a little sick about the whole thing.

...works both as a large format infommercial for the store and a Rorschach for those of us with our noses pressed against those windows, watching the elaborate working displays of decorator David Hoey. Are we amused or envious?

For lovers of fashion who think of designers as Greek gods, and Bergdorf's as their Olympus.

The overall feel is less of a cohesive documentary and more of a slapdash scrapbook of facts, historical information and name-dropping.

Much of the window dressing has gone out of fashion. It's nice to revisit it here.

It's fun to take a glimpse into this rarified world, but it's also a little off-putting when one interviewee explaining Bergdorf's appeal frames it as the aspirational apex of the American Dream.

As a sociological exercise, it's like another culture. As a film, it's like science fiction, a visit to Planet Obscenely Wealthy. It is weirdly compelling.

What's it like to try on clothes at one of the most expensive stores in the world? You won't find out in Matthew Miele's documentary.

A fascinating doc that accurately captures the luster of the venerated fashion mecca and shows why Bergdorf's has become an American institution ...

A gloriously gilded wonderland - the stuff of dreams, on view for everyone.

It's a shame that more time isn't spent inside wandering around the establishment Miele is celebrating, as the pixie dust of elitism and fashionista fawning wears off in a hurry.

It's entertaining, but it might be more pleasingly watched with a fast-forward button.
