Reviews of "Bird on the Wire" and/or "Songs From the Road"?

Postby LCmusicfan » Wed Aug 11, 2010 11:09 pm

Hi all,

All through last weekend, I was hoping to see some reviews of Tony Palmer's film, but I didn't come across any posts about it. Similarly, I didn't see any posts following the first screening of the "Songs..." DVD. I'm sure that many of us would love to hear any reviews of either project. It's a long wait for those of us who were unable to attend Krakow and we've still got some weeks of waiting ahead of us. It would be great to see how you all felt about the screenings!

Best wishes to all...I hope LC comes back to tour the US soon!

For those who haven't seen the film "Bird on a Wire" - it is worth waiting for. As a documentary from Leonard Cohen tour, the film is full of Leonard Cohen's songs with wonderful sound quality. But the film is more than just that. Practically without resorting to showing more than the tour itself, Tony Palmer manages to give a glimps of Leonard's Cohen personality, his sensitivity and the strong bond that he forms with his audience. I believe that for all his fans the film is a personal experience coming close to being able to accompany Leonard Cohen on his tour.

Cmon speaker - won't you speak to me ?

32 years after I was lucky to watch Bird on the wire in a Camden theatre, I finally have it home now in perfect quality. This means a lot to me, more than all those new Live DVD's. I am very grateful to Tony Palmer and Steven Marchat, who made this happen. When I left the Camden theatre, I felt, that I wasn't the person that I came with.
