Usually music docs are about well-known, estabilshed figures like the Beatles or Bob Dylan, but this one spotlights one of the most influential and innovative cult figures that you may never have heard of. Some viewers who hadn't heard of Scott Walker thought the movie was a fake. Walker was part of the 60s pop group the Walker Brothers (not brothers, none really named Walker), who were nearly as big as the Beatles in England. At the height of their fame, Scott quit to release four lush, orchestrated albums, none of which did well. He then became a bit of a recluse, only to re-emerge as a highly idiosyncratic, avant-garde singer. This excellent documentary covers his career and features testimonies from Radiohead, Jarvis Cocker, Johnny Marr, Brian Eno and David Bowie, who also was one of the producers. Best of all there are interviews with the usually press shy Walker, who despite his lofty reputation, is articulate, thoughtful, and down to earth. A must for anyone who cares about music.
