Leonard Cohen - I'm Your Man, a glorious mix of documentary and concert film, shows just how timeless Cohen's music and words are. Intercutting interviews and archive footage with performances from a tribute concert held in Sydney in early 2005, the movie captures the elegance, wit, spiritual longing and deep humability of Cohen's work. Rufus Wainwright, Beth Orton, Jarvis Cocker, Linda Thompson, Teddy Thompson, Nick Cave and the falsetto-crazy Antony are among the stars who sing. And Cohen, raking over his past and his present, reflects. Like his songs, Cohen's interview borders on the pretentious but never gets there - ably deflated by irony and selfdeprecation. (Steven Rea)
