Leonard Cohen: I'm Your Man is a 2005 movie by Lian Lunson about the life and career of Leonard Cohen. The movie is based on a January 2005 tribute show at the Sydney Opera Housemarker titled "Came So Far for Beauty", which was produced by Hal Willner. Performers at this show included Nick Cave, Jarvis Cocker, The Handsome Family, Beth Orton, Rufus Wainwright, Martha Wainwright, Teddy Thompson, Linda Thompson, Antony, Kate and Anna McGarrigle, with Cohen's former back-up singers Perla Batalla and Julie Christensen as special guests. The end of the movie includes a performance by Leonard Cohen and U2, which was not recorded live, but filmed specifically for the movie, in New York in May 2005.

The movie premiered at the Toronto Film Festival in September 2005, and was released the same month in Canada by Lions Gate films along with the Sundance Channel. It was subsequently released in various other countries during 2006 and 2007. The film is distributed by Lions Gate Entertainment. A soundtrack CD is also available from Verve.

The DVD of the movie contains extra performances.
