Sadly, Douglas Tirola's documentary doesn't follow its subjects' advice regarding the refinement of technique.

It's unfortunate that a movie about the intoxicating allure of the highest-quality spirits leaves you feeling so stone-cold sober.

Probably a hit and a significant achievement among people already interested in cocktail culture, but unlikely to grab those who couldn't care less about the difference between a smash and a flip.

More successful as a sort of moving-picture coffee-table book homage to the glamor of the perfectly wrought cocktail than as a personalized narrative.

What carries the doc is Tirola's expansive, democratic spirit-his understanding of the value of bar as meeting place, not just a stage for bitters and booze.

As a drinker looking at the beautifully photographed cocktails, I finally started to understand why foodies go nuts for similar exposÚs about chefs.

For a cocktail documentary backed by a major independent distillery, Hey Bartender never devolves into the pro-drinking propaganda you might imagine.

Stirring and sophisticated, it's filled with insightful, engaging observations, like "The shot is the bartender's handshake."
