"This definitive portrait of rock's most fascinating and elusive outsider has pretty much everything you could possibly want from a music doc."
***** (Highest Rating) Time Out, London
"Like the best music documentaries, SW30 blends grace and mystery. It should delight longtime Walker fans and introduce him to new ones."
Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com
"Scott really should be recognized as not only one of our great composers, but great poets as well…and I have to say it's humiliating to hear this…you just think 'Christ we haven't got any further!' I just keep hearing all these bands that sound like bloody Roxy Music and Talking Heads. We haven't got any further than this. It's a disgrace really!"
"A staggering movie! Scott Walker is one of my all time favorite musicians and the movie is big and generous and totally absorbing. An introduction to the beautiful and radical work of a genius." --Laurie Anderson
"30 Century Man is a fascinating and entertaining exploration of one of the most extraordinary careers in pop culture. I have rarely seen a biographical documentary that is able to make the viewer experience the perspective of a devoted fan, a concerned friend, and a complete stranger at the same time. Like Scott Walker himself, this film is an absolutely unique." --Atom Egoyan
