We have lost Leonard Cohen, but his work is immortal. That conclusion is unavoidable to anyone watching Tony Palmer's powerful documentary about Cohen's 1972 tour of Europe, Leonard Cohen: Bird On A Wire.
Recently fully restored to Palmer's original vision and remastered for DVD, it premiered on the BBC in 2010. It is available for immediate delivery.
This film is essential viewing for every Cohen fan, old and new. His albums of this decade have sealed his long-lasting creativity and popularity. Bird On A Wire is also for every lover of retro rock, outstanding '70s music, and the best poetry of our times.
Bird On A Wire is as illuminating a picture of an artist battling his demons as you will ever see. In this backstage and onstage portrait, Cohen granted access far deeper than what today's stars allow.
