We see an art form bridge generations with a strange mixture of grace, joy and melancholy.
Like the singer himself - smooth and classy.
Like with any great singer, it's often the telling pauses of the man born Anthony Benedetto that say the most in "The Zen of Bennett."
These elements leave the documentary hanging somewhere between a glorified making-of album promo and a more in-depth portrait of the artist.
Friendly doc offers plentiful guest stars but only one perspective on the singer's career.
The way Mr. Bennett talks is the way he sings. There is no subtext, only the song conveyed with knowledge, heart, a sophisticated sense of swing and a positive attitude.
It feels a bit like a classed-up infomercial at times, but it's still as much a treat to witness Bennett's process as it is to see him interact with today's young stars.
As simple as Tony Bennett's life is, his magic could've used a documentary less simple-minded than The Zen of Bennett to explain it.
The arbitrary insertion of black-and-white footage suggests Moon is more interested in channeling a bygone sense of style-when men always wore ties and things were in monochrome, dammit!-than in going too deep.
