Hallelujah: Leonard Cohen, a Journey, a Song movie poster

"Spanning decades of his life and work, Hallelujah traverses Leonard Cohen's rise from Canadian poet to iconic musical artist. The documentary is a deep exploration into the artistry of Cohen, particularly his record label's rejection of his work and his subsequent musical failures. Though Cohen worked on his hit song for many years, "Hallelujah" only began to find its wings after iconic covers from the likes of Bono, k.d. lang, Celine Dion, Rufus Wainwright, Brandi Carlile, Bob Dylan, John Cale, and most notably, Jeff Buckley. In the song, we witness a man grappling with his faith and love, which comes through in archival footage and interviews with Cohen. The documentary also features interviews with Carlile, Dylan, Clive Davis, Adrienne Clarkson, Eric Church, and more. Fans young and old will not want to miss the film about one of Canada's most prolific artists." - Mongrel Media
