The Wikipedia article on Leonard Cohen says of Leonard Cohen: I'm Your Man: "It is a film of the 2005 tribute to Leonard Cohen "Came So Far For Beauty" held at the Syndey Opera House". There isn't much else to say about the movie, which isn't a biography, doesn't examine Cohen's considerable influence or influences, isn't a coherent presentation of his work, and for the most part doesn't even feature particularly good performances. The Wikipedia article, on the other hand, is quite fascinating, provided you have someplace at least as well air-conditioned as an art house cinema in which to read it.
