Dir. Lian Lunson
(98 min, United States, 2005)
Songwriter. Poet. Counter-culture icon. Consummate ladies’ man. Leonard Cohen was one of the most original and enduring artists to emerge from the 1960s.
Director Lian Lunson’s acclaimed concert film is an intimate look at the songs, poetry and life of one of music’s most influential troubadours. Narrated by Cohen himself, the film features performances of Leonard Cohen songs by such luminary artists as Rufus Wainwright, Nick Cave, Jarvis Cocker, Martha Wainwright, and Beth Orton, as well and a bring-down the house live collaboration featuring Cohen and U2.
