Re: Marianne & Leonard: Words of Love, film by Nick Broomfield

Hi B4! Yes, very interesting. Still, I think Marianne & Leonard is one of those movies most of us here would like to see.... no matter what people say about it! This reviewer is hopefully wrong in that it strikes him as not very good, but he did make me laugh when he said, "To Bloomfield, Cohen is a...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Hi 4! Thank you very much for the link to the cover of the Stranger Song (one of my favorites of course)! I loved it! I was scared before seeing it that they might massacre the tune or the lyrics. Thankfully they didn't do either! Unless you would call the Doors segue a massacre, which I wouldn't. I...

Re: Marianne & Leonard: Words of Love, film by Nick Broomfield

I also searched for a theater showing it on the West Coast from Seattle to San Diego but with no success. Thank you for the postings for a DVD source. I see it says that the format may not play outside of Europe, but I have purchased dvd's saying that before, and they usually (?) work. Has anyone pu...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's poetry and novels

Hello again. After a break to read a couple of guidebooks on Greece and Rome, and a detour (still in progress) to re-read The Emperor Series by Conn Iggulden, I have at last been able to finish reading Stranger Songs, and yes B4, it does seem like a general overall view of Leonard's work so far. It ...

Re: Healing of the Spirit: The Genius of Leonard Cohen

Thank you Jarkko for clearing that up. I will look forward to seeing the exhibit in San Francisco next year then! Dave will be glad to hear that Leonard isn't getting us into anything else until then ... at least not anything out of town! :)

Re: Healing of the Spirit: The Genius of Leonard Cohen

Thank you for the article. It was good! I especially liked reading how someone else is playing catch up just like me. ;-) I am confused about one thing though. The article said the exhibit will be going to San Francisco next (in Sep) then on to Copenhagen; however, the museum hosting it in SFO does ...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

B4 and 4- Thank you both for all of your thoughts, speculation, and info on the upcoming album! I loved the links from B4, and believe Curt is right in saying that B4 is not only a wealth of knowledge, but for some reason a master at organization in keeping it all at her fingertips. I think the key ...

Re: Half the Perfect World - Writers, Dreamers and Drifters on Hydra, 1955–1964

Paul,

How wonderful that it will be definitely be filmed in Hydra. I guess, how could it not? I will try to be patient. Not a forte of mine. ;-)

Thanks in advance for continuing to keep us posted on future progress!

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Hi 4! For me, I don't care what songs are on it, as long as they are Leonard's. :) If Adam is in charge of it, I am sure it will be great. I like him a lot and Leonard trusted him. So, I want to go back to Hydra for a moment (actually I want to go back to Hydra for forever, lol!), but I want to talk...

Re: Half the Perfect World - Writers, Dreamers and Drifters on Hydra, 1955–1964

I too am looking forward to this movie (an understatement in the least)! In addition to seeing the story between the characters acted out, I hope it will be filmed on location. Now that we have been there, I would love to see a film of the places we have been. Please keep us posted on the progress r...

Re: Half the Perfect World - Writers, Dreamers and Drifters on Hydra, 1955–1964

Paul, Thank you very much! We are arriving a bit later than the other 'Cohen-ites', so your directions are definitely a good start! They will help us find things after the others leave if we end up missing any sights. I am especially happy to hear that many of the landmarks have not changed much. We...
