Bird on a Wire is a time capsule of a specific period in Cohen's career. But it also neatly illustrates the singer's personality in an accessible and compelling way.

Nobody's ever really themselves on camera, but when Palmer zooms in on Cohen's tear-streaked face, Bird on a Wire feels like an honest portrait of a man just barely hanging on.

Cohen here is ever the model of grace and dignity around his peers, if not exactly entirely at peace with himself.
