Storyline

"Hallelujah: It Goes Like This" is a cinematic biography of a song. Inspired by "The Holy or the Broken," Alan Light's critically acclaimed 2012 book, this feature-length documentary is a definitive exploration of Leonard Cohen's internationally beloved anthem. The film weaves together three strands: The songwriter and his times. The song's dramatic journey from record label reject to chart-topping hit. And a cinema verite look as invited major recording stars take on the daunting mantle of interpreting their own versions of this singular piece of music. As Leonard Cohen once said, "There is a religious Hallelujah, but there are many other ones. When one looks at the world, there's only one thing to say, and it's 'Hallelujah.' That's the way it is." Written by Dan Geller
