Ladies and Gentlemen, Mr. Leonard Cohen

1965 NR

Before he gained fame as a singer-songwriter, Leonard Cohen was a hit poet and novelist in Montreal, as this jazzy 1965 documentary illustrates. The artist is shown at the top of his literary game as he thrills a packed house during a reading. The informal portrait follows Cohen around for a few days, observing him as a poet and burgeoning musician. Also included are four experimental music videos based on Cohen songs.
