"I had the title poet, and maybe I was one for a while," says the inimitable Leonard Cohen in this mesmerizing doc. "Also the title singer was kindly accorded me, even though I could barely carry a tune." Centered around a tribute concert at the Sydney Opera House featuring Nick Cave, Rufus Wainwright and many others, filmmaker Lian Lunson here skillfully combines riveting live performance and intimate interviews with musicians Cohen has inspired, as well as the man himself. As detailed in our dynamic course Leonard Cohen: Words and Music, Cohen is an unparalleled storyteller, charmingly recounting tales from his past and exploring how his creative process has evolved over the years.
