Rosewater

Evidently in the upcoming movie, Rosewater, directed by John Stewart, the lead character, a journalist imprisoned in Iran, sings Leonard Cohen songs to himself while in jail. The trailer shows him dancing to a song in his cell, but the soundtrack does not reveal the song.

Re: Leonard Gets No More "Bad Reviews"

Panjandrum - I think that is an accurate analysis - I would just add some additional recognition as
'the guy who wrote Hallelujah'. When you see a reference to the song now, more often than not it is referred to as Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah.

Leonard Gets No More "Bad Reviews"

As a fan since the start - 1967 - I think Leonard has never received more publicity than has been the case over the past couple of weeks, what with the new album, the wonderful birthday and, also, the witty smoking pledge that drew a lot of attention. This was certainly the case here in the USA, and...

Re: Popular Problems - Various Chart Positions

Great news - why do people in the Netherlands, Switzerland and Austria have such superior taste to those here in the USA?

Nevermind - what is #27? I see he also makes #50.

Re: Popular Problems - Various Chart Positions

Not the official Billboard 200 chart, but this one shows Popular Problems at #12 in the US - disappointing?

Re: LEONARD COHEN HISTORY ON BILLBOARD 200 ALBUMS CHART (U.S

I think PP will crack the top 10, but will not match Old Ideas #3 position. Streisand, Bennett/Gaga, K. Chesney and Alt-J are expected to take the top 4 places.

Re: Popular Problems - First Impressions

I have a young relative in the music business in Los Angeles - he tells me that Patrick Leonard is regarded among many in the industry as being very much Last Year's Man.

Re: "Popular Problems" - the next LC album (late September 2

If Sony promotes Popular Problems with the same level as support as it gave to Old Ideas (a billboard in Times Square, etc.), will the album make #1 in the US and UK? As I recall, Old Ideas was kept out of the #1 spot in the US and UK by Lana Del Rey's first album, but it made #1 in a number of othe...

Re: "Popular Problems" - the next LC album (late September 2

There are a number of websites that list upcoming album release dates - all the way through November. None of them mentions Popular Problems.

Re: any Cohen song you DONT like!?!?

I find Land of Plenty to be a great song, but in the end disappointing because it needs a couple of additional verses - seems a bit thin as recorded. I think with two more verses the song would be substantial and could stand with LC's finest.

Re: Leonard Cohen Concert Inspires Oscar Winner-Best Documen

I saw the documentary. It is okay, but cannot hold a candle to last years winner "Searching for Sugarman", which was also music-themed and was exceptional.
