Adam Cohen has released a video promoting his new album, “Like A Man.” In it, he talks about finding his place as part of his father’s heritage rather than rebelling against that notion. Consequently, Leonard Cohen appears often in this brief video. These photos are all screen captures from “Adam Cohen – Like A Man”
The first shot is Leonard Cohen with his grandson (Adam’s son). The second image shows Leonard and Adam Cohen embracing. The third is composed of two screenshots, one showing Adam Cohen walking past a mirror and one showing a young Leonard Cohen also walking past a mirror (a scene originally from “Ladies and Gentlemen – Mr. Leonard Cohen”). Fourth is Leonard Cohen in the audience watching his son perform. Fifth is Leonard Cohen talking about about his son’s performance; the full caption (including the previous frames) follows:
He’s the real thing. Even if he weren’t my son, I’d be deeply moved. The fact that he is my son makes me so very happy.
There are many more allusions to Leonard Cohen, including scenes from Hydra. Rufus Wainwright also makes a couple of appearances.
