This November saw the passing of one of our greats – poet, novelist, monk, songwriter, and heart-melting baritone Leonard Cohen. To commemorate the death of our favorite ladies’ man, we present a series showcasing Cohen on the big screen: as subject, soundtrack, actor, and inspiration.
The filmmaker/anthropologist (and Cohen’s fellow tenant at the Chelsea Hotel) Harry Everett Smith was reported to have said to Cohen: “Leonard, I know a lot of people are congratulating you on the lyrics, but I want you to know, the tunes are really good.” Here we celebrate not only the well-known use of Cohen’s tunes in the likes of MCCABE AND MRS MILLER and BEWARE OF THE HOLY WHORE, but also the early film documents that show Cohen’s days as a poet and novelist in Canada before he took up song. Join us in celebrating the bard of darkness and saying, “So long, Leonard.”
