Plot Summary

Reclusive musician Scott Walker first became famous as a member of the 1960s trio The Walker Brothers. This documentary examines his career, from briefly popular teen idol to increasingly eccentric solo artist, including footage of the recording of his 2006 album "The Drift." Fellow musicians from Radiohead to David Bowie explain his importance, while Walker recounts his career, from his fleeting moment of pop cultural fame through his drug-dazed days to cult legend.

    Glosses over the depression and alcoholism that have bedeviled Walker as well as any relationships he might have had. But that doesn't make the film any less interesting. show more

    Ray BennettThe Hollywood Reporter

    Presented 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. show more
