Saw this film at the Los Angeles premiere end of June 2006 - the film is full of love for the creative talent of an extraordinary wordsmith whose music mystically takes his words to an even higher vibration.

the film is so real the audience gave standing ovations for performances in the film!!!

And Leonard himself came out to thank the audience, saying he was retiring to the green room to fortify himself with a drink to deal with "the moral pneumonia that comes after the blizzard of praise."

OBTW - he did say he was thinking of going on tour again - at 71 - imagine!

Format: DVD
Hagiography is a perfect fit for what it seems was attempted with this movie. And Leonard deserves just that, but done well. What is up with that strange noise the director hits us over the head with implying Leonard's 'mystic' status? Is it wind? Music? Definately annoying and totally uncalled for. When Leonard speaks let the audience determine if what he is saying is profound/esoteric, etc without the parlor tricks. Geez. It made what was happening so amateurish (that 'noise') and cheapened the reality of what was being heard and seen.

The reverence by the performers was well represented. I didn't much care for the cd that was born of this dvd. Many of the performances seemed too campy, as if they were competing for the best off-kilter interpretation of what are Leonard classics. It was infinately better to watch and listen as opposed to just listening to the cd. Antony is the best exception to the 'interpretive wars' (see my cd review for details). He out shines all with "If It Be Your Will" honoring its original ambiance with his voice that just makes you want to cry and you don't know why.

I know Leonard embraced Lian's making of this piece and I can tell she is truly enamoured of him and his talents, but the story is badly presented. The weird noises, the strange use of visuals and the camera actions make you think more about the 'film' being made instead of the content, like an annoying fingerprint showing up on each frame of the screen. She should have remained invisible and let the story speak for itself.

I hope someone puts together a 'hagiography' of Leonard that does let him show up without all the nonsense.

That said, buy it! Leonard is in it. I will, despite all watch it again.

Regards,

Laurie

Leonard Cohen's music brings together poetry, melody, sensuality and spirit in a way that hasn't been matched by any other performer i know. This movie alludes to the magic of Cohen's work but cannot fully capture it as it focuses most of its time on performers who, while trying hard, fall short of what was asked of them.

As a previous reviewer quipped, I'd much prefer to see more of the man and less of the fans. I found myself fidgeting whenever the camera focused on others. Especially the Wainwrights seemed to be all over the place, undeservedly so, IMHO; and Nick Cave was vaguely dissapointing with his Sinatra mannerisms. I liked the piece by Anthony (who I haven't heard of before) and especially the closing performance by Bono and his buddies together with Cohen; it was touching to see the respect these guys have for the old aristocrat.

I have a lot of affection for Cohen and was sincerely touched by this movie. The humility, the nobility of character and mind and the sheer power of presence that emanate from Leonard show how a well-spent life looks like.

Format: DVD
This is a beautiful celebration of a beautiful man. If you missed the film in theatres and have even the slightest interest in seeing it or in Leonard Cohen, you won't be disappointed. It delivers beyond expectations.

The DVD also includes Rufus Wainwright's tender and powerful version of "Hallelujah" -- a glaring omission on the CD and a definite highlight of the film.

The four bonus performances not in the film are:

"Tower of Song" - Martha Wainwright

"Bird on A Wire" -- Perla Batalla

"Famous Blue Raincoat" -- The Handsome Family

"Tonight Will Be Fine" -- Teddy Thompson

The "Conversation with Leonard Cohen" feature is good, but so short it's just a tease.

There is much poetry and courage in this film. Both the narrative and the performances are affirmations of life and humanity...done with great talent, humor, depth, craftsmanship, warts and all.

Leonard Cohen has a lot to say. In more ways than one, "I'm Your Man" adheres to and gives life to his musical and poetic vision.

Leonard Cohen is a master and this documentary is a fitting tribute to a legend. The audience at the Film Forum in New York sat in awed silence while the music washed though us and the lyrics cleansed our souls. Sometimes, the words cut painfully close to the bone, reminding us of our shared experience of being human.

Leonard Cohen goes to places most of us are unwilling to look at and brings back truth that no one can deny. Bono accurately describes it as going into the abyss and laughing at it. The artists performing his songs follow him there and brilliantly express the depth of his poetry set to music.

This is an outstanding film, documenting the poetic voice of our generation, and surely of many generations to come.
