My god... what have
Leonard Cohen I'm
Your Man is a music-documentary about a group of non commercial
musicians that include Nick Cave, Rufus Wainwright and Beth Orton as
they perform songs by this living legend.
Cohen is clearly a
songwriter's songwriter and the resulting movie brims with an
infectious passion for the man's melodies and sardonic wit, however
the performances are interspersed with interview footage that does
take away the message of this movie.
Where the movie
shines is from the concert footage as we see these musicians really
live up the music of Cohen, especially Nick Cave and Rufus
Wainwright. Interesting, strange and strangely watchable!
