Ladies and Gentlemen… Mr. Leonard Cohen

Director: Don Owen, Donald Brittain Year: 1965 Run Time: 44min

This informal black-and-white portrait of Leonard Cohen shows him at age 30 on a visit to his hometown of Montreal, where the poet, novelist and songwriter comes “to renew his neurotic affiliations.” He reads his poetry to an enthusiastic crowd, strolls the streets of the city, relaxes in this three-dollar-a-night hotel room and even takes a bath. One of Don Owen’s finest portrait films, emphasizing its subject's self-deprecating humour and poetic craft.
