4.0 out of 5 stars " It was good to be reminded of the way things were, 8 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Leonard Cohen - Bird on a Wire [DVD] (DVD)
I recall going to the cinema circa 1974 to watch this, so memories came flooding back. Looking at it now it's astonishingly refreshing on many levels: a) How young the man looks compared with the elder statesman he has become b) The somewhat amateurish nature of the tour in terms of organisation and paucity of both equipment and pretension c) The disarming edginess of his performances. All of these in contrast to the corporate corpulence of recent tours-" When legend Cohen takes to the stage it is no less than an event of Biblical dimensions." ( The Independent ) No doubt all outwith his control or approval!

" The past is a foreign country, they do things differently there." It was good to be reminded of the way things were. When you could turn up, as I did at Newcastle City Hall in September 1974, the day before and buy two tickets for Cohen, get change from 3 and not be assailed by merchandisers pushing everything from fridge magnets to coffee mugs. So, in conclusion, educational for the young to see tours in their infancy and good for the oldies to bask in their rose tinted memories.

Great because it is a film about Leonard Cohen. Great poet, songwriter, and performer. The film matches with Dylan's Don't Look Back and is a must for lovers of music documentary.

This review is from: Leonard Cohen - Bird on a Wire [DVD] (DVD)
The movie shows that he was/is a really sincere guy. Loves what he does and loves his audience. Thanks are due to his accountant/manager for being so bad to him to asllow him to come back to his fans
