Leonard Cohen again, again

I went to see LEONARD COHEN I’M YOUR MAN again tonight. That’s right — three times in four days. The movie closed tonight at the Little here in Rochester, so if you didn’t see it, you’ll have to wait for the DVD or travel to another city.

I really can’t explain what it is about this film that grabs my guts so strongly. The music is amazing, of course, as is the poetry. The collection of voices. The way Cohen-as-guru is mixed in among the songs. The obvious awe and reverence his words and music inspire in the other musicians.

Maybe I’m just in the right place in my life to be open to this music and this man and this experience.

In any case, I’m so thankful that The Little brought this movie to Rochester. Kudos to Rob Russell, the new executive director!
