Storyline

This cinematic portrayal of Tony Bennett caps a year-long celebration of a singer who celebrated his 80th birthday last August. Bennett's most recent chart topping CD, "Tony Bennett Duets: An American Classic," has also reached another milestone for the singer, becoming the biggest selling album of his career. "Duets" was awarded three Grammy Awards last Sunday in the categories of "Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album," "Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals" and "Best Instrumental Arrangement Accompanying Vocalist(s)."

Not a Documentary, Exactly...
28 December 2016 | by gavin6942See all my reviews

Archival footage, live performances, and interviews conducted by none other than Clint Eastwood depict the life and career of Tony Bennett.

Apparently this was an episode of a television show, though now Netflix presents it as essentially its own film. Which, to be fair, it more or less is. It's not exactly a biopic or a documentary. It's not hard-hitting, not terribly in-depth. But if you know very little about Bennett, you will learn something here about his commitment to racial equality and other things.

I really enjoyed the Alec Baldwin segment. I had not seen the SNL in question, but Baldwin's impression is spot on. Even the makeup is incredible... would love to see this in all its glory.
