Cohen at the movies

Postby vern.silver » Sun Apr 26, 2009 2:59 pm

I went to see the latest Russel Crow movie last night and was surprised to see a clip of the Jiam Gomeshi interview played in amongst the ads and other stuff they subject us to nowadays. Talk about exposure!

SUGAR The story of a promising young pitcher from the Dominican Republic
Deep into the film, a Spanish language version of Leonard Cohen’s modern-day secular hymn “Hallelujah” seems to sharpen the emotional focus of the tale. Reprised during the final credits, the song becomes an unofficial anthem (yet another link to the anthem-driven — “Streets of Laredo” — against-type baseball saga, Bang the Drum Slowly). “Your faith was strong, but you needed proof,” goes the lyric, and our hero’s wandering path.

I saw the same clip as vern.silver last Sunday before the new Star Trek movie. My deep admiration for LC goes back almost as long as I've been a fan of ST, especially Mr. Spock. My daughters said it was special for Mother's Day that I got to see both my boyfriends named Leonard on the big screen that day. I'm just thrilled they're both going full steam ahead and still finding new fans!

Me, too! I saw the CBC Cohen clip before Star Trek. A friend of mine later commented that LC and Leonard Nimoy bear a strong resemblance. Maybe a little...
