Hit and miss tribute to the great melancholist.

Cohen is clearly a songwriter's songwriter, and the resulting movie brims with an infectious passion for the man's melodies and sardonic wit. Unfortunately, the performances are interspersed with interview footage that is much less captivating.

At various times poet, consort of beautiful women and Zen monk, his biog's intriguing too, all of which makes this doc highly welcome, even if it's at best a partial view.

It's not a deep documentary. We learn precious little about the real man underneath his sharp-dressed pose.

October 27, 2006 | Rating: 3/5

I'm Your Man may be as close as we'll ever get to Cohen on film.

Audience Reviews for Leonard Cohen: I'm Your Man

Loves the Leonard but the movie just weren't all that. Dominated by ho-hum guest artist concert footage.

Fantastic music, though I was expecting more of an emphasis on the music/concert than on Cohen (they interrupted every song with interviews; I wish they could have been separate). Also, there was no sign of Teddy Thompson performing The Future, even though it's on the CD...

Sure, these musicians love the guy, but why and how exactly is he a legend?
