Rolling Stone just gave the DVD FOUR STARS: “Even David Bowie - the executive producer of this exceptionally smart documentary - admits it: Scott Walker is the original avant-garde crooner.”

The new gold standard for music documentaries.” - DVD Talk

“The year’s most enriching music documentary.” Time Out Chicago

Long, long, LONG overdue in the US of A, the DVD will feature some exclusive DVD extras including a bit more making-of-The Drift studio footage and an extended tour through the incredible collection of Walker-collector par excellence, Arnie Potts. More info on how to pre-order (and purchase the nice new poster) here.
LA gets one more chance (yes LA, this is your third opportunity) to catch it on the big screen on July 1 &2 at the New Beverly.  And word has it that the film will open the Last Call Film Festival in Louisville, KY on June 27.
