Scott Walker portrayed in 'honest' docu-film

Scott Walker: 30th Century Man

Director: Stephen Kijack

Cast: Scott Walker, Jarvis Cox, David Bowie, Lulu, Brian Eno

Cert: PG

Whatever happened to Scott Walker, one of the legendary Walker Brothers of Take It Easy On Yourself and The Sun Ain’t Gonna Shine Anymore fame?

He split, had a successful solo career and became a recluse.

So in Kijack’s brilliant and thoughtful documentary we are brought the inside story, with contributions from the man himself as well as a host of performers and producers.

The conclusion of the film, and that long-held by the singer’s fans, is that he one of the most vital entertainers … and this film paints him in honest and satisfying detail.

Star Rating: 4/5
