Movies: Marianne & Leonard: Words of Love, Mike Wallace is Here, Luce

Movie 1: Marianne & Leonard: Words of Love

Set in the 1960’s and 70’s, mostly on the Greek Island of Hydra, Marianne was the inspiration/muse for several of Leonard Cohen’s hit songs. This film is a documentary about the famous couple.

Marrianne was a Norwegian ex-pat and Leonard a Canadian poet. The film received mixed reviews but we found it both interesting and entertaining.


Movie 2: Mike Wallace Is Here

Wow! This documentary is a thorough look at his television career and unique style as an interrogative reporter. It’s concurrently interesting and annoying. It’s also a wild romp through history and well worth the watch.


Movie 3: Luce

This film is unique, relevant, well acted. It’s filled with provocative scenes. Excellent character acting makes this production work even with its occasionally awkward story line. It’s well worth a watch.
