The baffled king ... Hallelujah: Leonard Cohen, a Journey, a Song

FILM REVIEW - Xan Brooks, The Guardian

"Cohen’s sombre mystique arguably lends itself to a more radical approach than the standard talking-heads format deployed here. Hallelujah is one for the fans, thorough and informative, like a set of cinematic liner notes, largely content to marvel at the majesty of its subject and the vibrant afterlife of his work. Still, if the film is finally unwilling or unable to let daylight in on magic, that’s probably for the best. Regina Spektor describes Hallelujah as a modern prayer. Issermann says it’s a symbolist poem. Cohen’s former rabbi goes further still, crediting its creation to the “bat kol” – the voice of God, using the songwriter as its vessel."
