PART III: SCOTT WALKER: 30 CENTURY MAN
Our third pick of Oscilloscope favorites goes to SCOTT WALKER: 30 CENTURY MAN! Oscilloscope has distributed a treasure trove of music documentaries, exposing audiences to the truth and stories behind the sounds we know and love. This 2006 gem, shows a rare glimpse into the creative world of the most enigmatic figure in rock history. Tracing the undeniable impact Scott Walker has had on popular music through casual interviews with some of his biggest, highest profile fans, the film explores his fascinating trajectory. From jobbing bass player on LA’s Sunset Strip, to his domination of the British pop scene that began in the swinging summer of 1965, to his transformation into a composer of true genius, here is an uncompromising and serious musician working at the peak of his powers. At age 63, over the course of 2005, he went into the studio again, working on what could be his greatest artistic statement yet, and filmmakers were invited to experience this process with him.
“Like the best music documentaries, Scott Walker: 30 Century Man blends grace and mystery. It should delight longtime Walker fans and introduce him to new ones.” – Salon.com
“Longtime fans of Walker’s warm, sepulchral baritone, startlingly evocative songwriting and lushly imaginative instrumentation will rejoice at this revealing docu.” – Variety
