- Summary: Scott Walker: 30 Century Man is the new documentary feature about one of the most influential and enigmatic figures in rock history. Director Steven Kijak explores Walker's music and career, from his early days as a jobbing bass player on the Sunset Strip, to heartthrob mega-stardom in Britain’s swinging 60’s pop scene, and finally to his transformation into a composer of true genius; an uncompromising musician working at the peak of his powers who has hidden from fame. The filmmakers were granted unprecedented access to Scott and his musical process, the first time the famously reclusive artist has allowed this level of contact with a film crew in over 20 years.

70Presented as a straight documentary about an American pop singer who had one U.K. hit in the 1960s as a member of a boy band and has gone missing ever since, but it plays like the slyest of spoofs.
From the increasingly experimental solo records that followed, and Walker's subsequent reputation as a reclusive genius and cult figure, you'd expect the subject of Stephen Kijak's documentary to be a forbidding, pretentious artiste--and the pleasant surprise of Kijak's film is that he's anything but.
