Via The Believer, the extraordinary 1965 documentary Ladies and Gentlemen… Mr. Leonard Cohen by Donald Brittain and Don Owen, available to watch in full on the NFB of Canada website. An “informal black-and-white portrait of Leonard Cohen shows him at age thirty on a visit to his hometown of Montreal, where the poet, novelist, and songwriter comes ‘to renew his neurotic affiliations.’” Forty-four minutes well-spent.
