Published Mar 23, 2011Experimental legend Brian Eno continues to push the envelope with his thought-provoking ideas and new music, as evidenced by Exclaim!'s recent interview with him. Still, there's no denying the impact he had in the early '70s, a fact that will be explored in a new documentary called 1971-1977: The Man Who Fell to Earth.
A press release incorrectly calls the film "the first ever about Eno," discounting the many documentations of Eno's work, including the 1989 classic Imaginary Landscapes, which can be viewed in full here, as well as the 2010 BBC doc Another Green World.
Still, 1971-1977: The Man Who Fell to Earth looks like a worthwhile film, as it follows Eno's career arc in those early years, a time that some consider his golden age. As the press release explains, the film includes "numerous exclusive interviews, contributions from a range of musicians, writers, collaborators and friends -- plus performance and studio film and an abundance of the most exceptional music ever created."
1971-1977: The Man Who Fell to Earth will be released on May 17 via the MVD Entertainment Group. A pre-order for the DVD can be found here.
