Synopsis


Leonard Cohen: I'm Your Man
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. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    I was a fan in the 60s, and followed Cohen through the years; however, in this release I was able to learn more about the depth, wisdom, and personality of the man himself than ever before. It is interesting to hear some of his music sung extremely well by other artists-to hear their interpretation, to hear him tell the inspiration behind certain songs, and to witness Cohen sing with U2 as his "backup boys." This DVD definitely was produced by persons who respect and love this man, and who send the message that, like Dylan, he is a living legend.
