Consensus: A moving, if somewhat uneven, look at the legendary singer-songwriter, I'm Your Man treats Cohen's body of work with the reverence it deserves.

Time Out

At various times poet, consort of beautiful women and Zen monk, his biog's intriguing too, all of which makes this doc highly welcome, even if it's at best a partial view.

I'm Your Man never quite gets its man in a coherent frame, but for all its zigs and zags outside the lines, the portrait of Cohen that emerges is a fascinating one.

Filmmaker Lian Lunson uses a 2005 Sydney tribute concert to Leonard Cohen as a home base for her relatively shallow examination of the best folk singer to slit your wrists to.

It's not a deep documentary. We learn precious little about the real man underneath his sharp-dressed pose.

An odd but enjoyable concoction of biography, music commentary and concert.

I'm Your Man may be as close as we'll ever get to Cohen on film.

You know it has to be coming, but when it does, 'Suzanne' almost stops time with its prayerful beauty.

Loves the Leonard but the movie just weren't all that. Dominated by ho-hum guest artist concert footage.
William Goss
Sure, these musicians love the guy, but why and how exactly is he a legend?

Fantastic music, though I was expecting more of an emphasis on the music/concert than on Cohen (they interrupted every song with interviews; I wish they could… More
