Beware Of Mr. Baker Review

Beware Of Mr. Baker
Even by rock drummer standards, Cream's Ginger Baker, a kind of Keith Moon with the handbrake off, was a brilliantly iconoclastic character. This documentary tells his story.

Original Title:

Beware Of Mr. Baker

Adroitly melding interview, animation and archive footage, this is an affectionate but unflinching portrait of Cream drummer Ginger Baker, who is pugnaciously impenitent about his musical legacy and tempestuous private life. A fascinating and refreshingly unrosy treat for ’60s nostalgics.

Like Spinal Tap's more seriously older brother, Jay Bulger's fond but unsparingly honest film is a treat for fans and music lovers. A juicy slice of rock history.
