Leonard Cohen On What Persuaded Him To Take Part In I’m Your Man Documentary: “The Kind Of Radiant Presence Lian [Lunson] presents”

Leonard Cohen On Why He Participated In I’m Your Man

#1 His [Cohen’s] respect for Lunson’s [Willie] Nelson documentary – and, Cohen has said, his response to “the kind of radiant presence Lian presents” – persuaded him to participate in the film.1

#2 Brantley Bardin: What made you decide to do it [participate in the “I’m Your Man” documentary]?

Leonard Cohen: I was approached by [director] Lian Lunson and she’s very beautiful.2
