Trailer Review

Hudson Vally Picture Show

Old Dutch Church, Kingston

According to legend, Leonard Cohen asked Bob Dylan how long it took to write “I and I.” “15 minutes,” Dylan answered. And how long did it take Cohen to write “Hallelujah”? Find the answer in Dayna Goldfine and Dan Geller’s glorious portrait of both Cohen, a poet with a raspy, growly Old Testament voice, and his most beloved song, nearly lost as an unreleased track before becoming the most unlikely anthem in Hollywood history. (U.S., 2021, 118m).
