BEWARE OF MR. BAKER
Admittedly, I'm late to the party on this one. Last night, I watched Beware of Mr. Baker only hours after being made aware of its existence. Director Jay Bulger approaches his subject directly and the end product is stellar. For those who know of the massive influence Ginger Baker has had on everyone who picked up sticks in his wake, you will love this documentary.
And the uninitiated? Track this down and velcro yourself in for a gripping 90 minutes on the edge of your seat with a legend. His personal life is certainly not for the innocent, though all is explored frankly. No punches are pulled, as you'll see in the trailer.
Find and watch this movie! Once done, read his autobiography Ginger Baker: Hellraiser to fill in the gaps.
