A Cantor's Tale (2005)
Critic Reviews for A Cantor's Tale
With its outlandish stories, obsession with masculine ego, and focus on an absurd, forgotten subculture, A Cantor's Tale is the stuff Ben Stiller movies are made of ...
Delightful docu A Cantor's Tale casts a fond eye back at the 'golden age' of chazzanut (Jewish liturgical music) and its star performers in the Brooklyn of yesteryear, while also profiling one of the form's most significant latter-day advocates.
... A Cantor's Tale is more concerned with singing praises than with arguing over orthodoxies.
Effectively portrays this practice as a deeply spiritual marriage of religious commitment and artistic perseverance.
It's Mendelson's love of chazzanut, and of music in general, that drives this engaging film; anyone familiar with the power of music to transcend language and cut straight to powerful, transformative emotions will find his passion irresistible.
