Aroview: A fittingly sublime homage documentary to the stately Leonard Cohen, based around the tribute concert held in his honour at the Sydney Opera House in 2005.
Cohen modestly reflects on his work and his craft of songwriting, while such diverse admirers as Nick Cave, Bono, Rufus Wainwright, Martha Wainwright, Anna & Kate McGarrigle, Jarvis Cocker, Beth Orton, Teddy Thompson, The Handsome Family, Antony, and even the man himself lend their vocal talents to the poetic beauty of Leonard Cohen's tower of songs.
3 stars (Good Enough) Interspersed biographical details of this most elusive of artists and the all too short live recording of the man himself playing along with members of U2 in New York make this disc worthwhile. Oh, and the Sydney tribute concert isn't so bad either. ~Anon
