“Lou Reed: Transformer” documents the making of the groundbreaking 1972 album by the musician, singer and songwriter, who died earlier this year. In it, a relaxed Reed looks like he's having the time of his life as he reminisces and isolates separate tracks to illustrate how the album came together. Bassist Herbie Flowers demonstrates how he recorded the swingy, impossibly catchy bass riff in "Walk on the Wild Side." David Bowie, who co-produced the film, makes a brief appearance, as do many of Reed's contemporaries and fellow musicians.
