Having said that, I may certainly be one in the making. As I type this, Scott Walker is 70 years old, and counting. I just turned 60 myself, in July of 2012. I am extremely impressed with the trajectory of this highly individualitic, and determined artist. Seldom have I come across an artist that has the length, breadth, and expanse, of Scott Walker, and I'm sure that there probably won't be many more, if ever. Even as Scott Walker is revealed within this absolutely fascinating documentary, you know that barely a whisper has actually been given. Scott has defied all the odds, and continues to follow his own vision, not caring if his own latter day career is something that anyone else will like, much less understand, he is just compelled to do it. In that way, Scott Walker very much is a "30th Century Man"; at turns highly private, enormously intelligent, and an artist that flys in the face of both wanting, or needing "popularity", and neatly pretty much eshewing it all together. Try doing THAT in such a competetive environment as that of the music industry. After watching this DVD, I was thoroughly interested in both the man, and his music. Scott's "music" may have changed, in ways almost incomprehensible, but his magnetism, certainly hasn't changed, as witnessed by all the other artists he has had such an influence on, in his mysterious wake. Thank God there are artists left such as Scott Walker, and that he continues to "speak" to those of us interested enough to listen, and to follow him; but always on his own terms. And I am....................
It is a wonderful moment worthy of a Werner Herzog documentary, because he too knows the power of letting the image speak for itself.
This is a remarkable movie. Walker is a really humble, fascinating and intelligent subject. His art gets the sophisticated treatment it deserves, we'll apart from Jarvis Cocker, who is a bit of a tosser really.
The film is "30 Century Man" and the subject is Scott Walker. Once upon a time in the 1960's, three typical tall, skinny Sunset Strip denizens with long hair and bangs past their eyebrows plus failed C.V.s as musicians moved to England, wherein the intrinsic lack of tall, skinny Sunset Strip denizens with bangs past their eyebrows would allow them to actually stand out. And they did, to eventual mega-stardom. Precursors of the Ramones' hat trick, these unrelated chums named themselves the Walker Brothers, surrendered to mainstream pop, and had enormous hit after enormous hit there, with their flagship sound of Scott Walker's baritone crooning. However mushy the MOR slop tended to be, at least it was interesting having "one of our own" youth culturers singing this way, and all three looking so shaggable. Believe me, David Bowie was listening INTENTLY to this particular sound, and you can hear it every concert he sings to this day.
Huge hits written by the era's best other songwriters, genuine Beatles-esque fan mobbing, compromises, breakdowns, supstance abuse, what photographer/director Larry Clark called "the usual betrayals in the music biz," then it gets weird. Prettiest boy and main voice Scott derails, joins a monestary, emerges as a Jacques Brel interpreter, then a techno-artist songwriter before there actually is techno, then avant-garde orchestrator cum performance artist for music that has no categorizing description, all of which he warbles the highest brow intellectual themes over. He releases his work maybe once a decade. This is the story of Scott Walker, a man rightly called the most enigmatic figure ever in the history of popular music, depicted from infancy to 2006 in "30 Century Man."
Director Steven Kijak gives us "listening heads" instead of the talking variety, what with David Bowie coming aboard, Radiohead, Brian Eno and others chatting about Walker's influence upon their own work. Even 60's compatriot Lulu inquires to the only director that's managed to snag an interview with Walker if he's still gorgeous (A: yes, in a tall, skinny, bit of receding hairline, wildly creative, intellectual mien way. Plus he's sober now for decades. The guy laughs a lot for a supposed morbidly reclusive type, too.) Many depicted fans of old don't "get" his newest work, voicing Luddite disdain for something so far ahead of what's going on now (whenever "now" is: that's the beauty of the avant garde) that they fail to embrace pure innovation for its own sake.
You'll see recent footage of him orchestrating in the studio (replete with a percussionist pounding a huge side of pork, or recording sounds under a wooden box,) and explaining his difficult themes with assured ease and aplomb. Thank God Scott Walker is still around, for this is one former pop star turned composer who is actually working at the peak of creative powers right here, right now, a massive acheivement for anyone, but especially former popstars. Trent Reznor should be so lucky when he's Walker's age. Check out "30 Century Man" now on dvd to watch a fascinating musical journey.
