Leonard Cohen on His Treatment of Women in The Favourite Game

What about the argument that [Leonard Cohen] fails women [in The Favourite Game] by denying them their human personalities, setting them up as only goddesses?

I can’t see things that way either. I don’t think anybody has failed anybody else. It’s only when you walk around with a programme or a fixed ideology or a strategy that you really encounter failure in this respect.quotedown2
