Leonard Cohen remains one of the great bards of the modern era, a poet, novelist and singer-songwriter whose dark, lyrical mediations on love, loss and death made him the defining voice of his generation.

This classic documentary captures Cohen as a budding poet in his home town of Montreal in 1964, a celebrated bohemian poised to translate his existential verse into pop immortality on songs like Suzanne and Sisters of Mercy.

Shot in black and white and laced with a jazzy instrumental score, the day-in-a-life film begins with a young Cohen delivering a comic monologue about his visit to a friend in a mental hospital. Already a legend in his home town, Cohen is seen reading poetry to a rapt audience, waxing lyrical, singing and playing guitar among family and friends, sleeping in his three-dollar-a-night hotel room.

A rare and intimate insight into Cohen's formative years, Ladies and Gentlemen: Mr Leonard Cohen is a compelling documentary of the man who would soon become a legend.
