Overview

Leonard Cohen is widely regarded as one of the finest and most influential poets and songwriters of his generation, a writer whose artful mélange of love, eros, and despair has earned him a passionate international following and the respect and admiration of artists ranging from R.E.M. to Johnny Cash. In 2005, music producer Hal Wilner staged an all-star tribute concert in Australia in which a handful of major artists offered their interpretations of Cohen's songs, including Nick Cave, Jarvis Cocker of Pulp, Rufus Wainwright, Beth Orton, Kate and Anna Mcgarrigle, and many more. Leonard Cohen I'm Your Man includes highlights from this concert and thoughts on Cohen and his work from the participants as well as an extensive interview with Leonard Cohen himself as he talks in detail about his life and his art. The film also includes a special performance of "Tower of Song," in which Cohen is accompanied by U2.

Leonard Cohen: I'm Your Man 3.4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 5 reviews.

Sometimes I think Leonard Cohen is the most underappreciated musician in the last hundred years because no one I know has ever heard of the man. Then I see something like this movie, that reminds that there are people out there with a great appreciation of this phenomenal musical talent. This documentary gathers a few famous faces and a number of musicians I've never heard of (lots of Canadians maybe?) and films a concert put on in tribute to the music of Cohen. It's ALL good. You might not find all your favorite songs performed, but a great many of them, and all of them are done with incredible love and style. However, I've never quite understood the concert documentary. Why watch the filmed concert when you can play the CD as much as you like when you're in your car or when you're working? Of course the concert is only half of the movie. The other half, interspersed through the film, is a candid interview with Mr. Cohen and the artists discussing his genius. The interviews with Cohen are incredibly insightful and eye-opening for anyone interested in his music. The only flaw is that these interviews are so short. Why not make the WHOLE movie the interview portion, a filmed biography of the man, providing his music in the background as soundtrack? So what we've got feels like two half-documentaries, half a concert and half an interview. For what it is, it's wonderful, I just wish it were more.

Reminded me of the past & the effect Leonard Cohen had on the time period.

An amazing look into the various musicians and styles of music that Mr. Cohen has influenced. There are some must see moments on this disc. Other than the Douche Bag Bono, who seems  to always jump on the "I was influenced by the cool artist" bandwagon just so he can think he is  relevant in any way to important music, there are many interviews with Leonard and other truly groundbreaking musicians. Antony has an absolutely epic performance that will make you rewind the disc over and over to watch it again and again. This is a must own movie!

Too much time spent listening to the incessant babble of Bono and The Edge. Who cares? Give me more Leonard.
