Bodies under McGill, Kevin Annett, MKULTRA, circles of Hell, pillars of Montreal, culture of crime, enter Leonard Cohen, a messiah complex, going to the dark side, 360 shades of gray.
Part Two: Among the Influencers (32 – 56 mins)
A shining light, among the influencers, Cohen’s circle, unseen Cohen stuff, evolution of “Hallelujah,” a foot in organized crime, Zen monasteries.
Part Three: Weaponized Art (56 mins – 1 hr 26 mins)
Peter Matheson, CIA Buddhism, monastic warehouses for traumatized agents, code of silence, controlled art market, CIA & expressionism, culture wars, weaponized art.
Part Four: Kitsch Limbo (1 hr 26 mins – end)
Canceling Cohen, Cohen’s two sides, a spiritual war, false idols, a teacher of human duplicity, don’t trust the packaging, healing the fragment, turning Cohen kitsch, Sebastian’s cult of celebrity, a satanic trap, the tower of song, articulating insanity, a death cult, the hummingbird.
