With elder-statesman words of wisdom from the man himself, Possibilities celebrates an impulse that's too rare in modern music: the love behind the labor of creation.

What we have here is a solid documentary covering one of the icons of modern music.

A cynic might regard Herbie Hancock: Possibilities as a glorified 'making of' video, fleshed out with some archival footage and clips from recent concerts.

[Possibilities] feels more like a behind-the-scenes CD promo than a fully realized film.

[The archival clips] are more interesting than the present-day material, which has the bland smoothness of a promotional press kit.

As directed by Doug Biro and Jon Fine, the film plays like one long commercial.

Possibilities will likely draw in only the most hardcore of Hancock's fans.

With its straightforward track-by-track recording-session clips, it feels like something you'd find on the bonus disc of a deluxe package.

Hancock's political musings seem mostly out of place in a film that, in essence, is little more than a glorified EPK.
