Entertaining, if lightly inquisitive, tribute concert film.

It tastefully serves the darkly searching sensitivity of a brave original.

Cohen is such a mesmerizing narrator of his own life, it's a shame the sound bites don't dig deeper; there's probably a first-rate autobiography in the outtakes.

As a movie subject, Cohen has proven equally electrifying and elusive.

You leave the theater in no doubt that he was born with the gift.

For those of us hard-wired since birth to sing the praises of this melancholy Montreal poet-musician, the film is a singular pleasure.

Pretty captivating...though also uneven and structurally problematical.

The only thing that matters is the music, if that's bad, the film will suck and if it's great, well...that's what you pay your money for.

Leonard Cohen, the darkly rumbling hipster-Buddhist-poet-troubadour gets his own loving tribute in this concert film/testimonial.

It's enough to send fans and converts alike to the Cohen library for more of the master himself.

Because Cohen is such a colorful, eloquent central character, I'm Your Man overcomes its flaws. His music may not be everyone's cup of folk-rock tea, but his stories of lost love, self-doubt and creative struggle ring universal.

I'm Your Man succeeds best when it intensifies its focus on the work and life of its main subject, seen in interviews, home movies and in a climactic performance with Bono and The Edge on 'Tower of Song.'
