Scott Walker – 30 Century Man

scott3 eyeLike a flashlight beaming into a dark room, this is the long awaited film about one of the most curious singer songwriters ever. Walker left the 60’s pop group The Walker Brothers in 1967 to escape the insanity of being a pop star, and would embark on a solo recording career during which he has made some of the most dark and compelling music known to man. This film, by director Stephen Kijak, features impressive historical background and talking head interviews about the subject, but really delivers with Scott himself being interviewed and most of all with glimpses of him working in the studio on a current project. For fans it is a real treat without destroying the mystique at all. For those unfamiliar, it serves as a great introduction. Released on DVD June 16,2009 by Oscilloscope.walkerposing
