Rating: 3/5 -- 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.

These elements leave the documentary hanging somewhere between a glorified making-of album promo and a more in-depth portrait of the artist.

Rating: 3/5 -- 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.

Friendly doc offers plentiful guest stars but only one perspective on the singer's career. Full Review

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. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- 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.
