An Intimate View Of An Intense Leonard Cohen
As indicated by the title of this post and evidenced by the screen captures (click on images for best viewing) from the video, this is a particularly up close and personal view1 of Leonard Cohen singing “The Partisan” at the September 21, 2010 Marseille concert.
While videos with such a close perspective are too often no more than methodological or technological novelties, this recording of Cohen’s performance of “The Partisan” invites intimacy and effectively displays the concentration, intensity, and focus of a singer completely given over to his song.

- I am at a loss to explain why none of the reviews and reports of this concert mentioned the videographer clinging to Cohen’s bolo tie as he shot this performance. [↩]
