Maybe more interesting if I knew about the man or was really into drumming. It starts interesting enough but my interest faded after about an hour.

Fascinating and infuriating in equal measure. The interviews are fascinating, especially with his family and ex-band mates who don't hold back with their views on him, and make up for the rather short and sharp answers that Baker gives himself during the film. The best bits of the film showed Baker playing his music as it's the only time during the piece where the man looks happy!

Such an interesting and rewarding documentary that even allows folks who are disinterested in this brand of music to find enjoyment!

Up there with the best of them (Rock Docs). Ginger is seriously nuts. Ginger spills the beans on himself and others. Ginger is a master of his art. Ginger doesn't give a fuck. I have never encountered any other artist who can carry the mantle of genius and embody rock and roll better than Ginger. Its obvious the fame meant nothing to him. This man just wanted to play drums (and polo!!! wha?) . Jay Bulger should be congratulated for making a documentary that is extremely well put together and filled with great, funny and poignant moments. It should also be mentioned that Bulger went as far as to put his physical safety on the line to get the story of the greatest drummer of all time. haha.

'Who is this stupid little c*nt?' I terrified the sh*t out of him!' -Ginger Baker, on meeting Mick Jagger

A fantastic documentary showcasing a definite musical genius and possible psychopath. Your jaw will drop at his skills as a drummer, the stories he tells and the things that come out of his mouth - great to watch, but you definitely wouldn't want to be in the same room as him!

Fascinating documentary of an awesome drummer and a SOB of a person.

Beware of Mr. Baker is a fascinating, humorous and at times fairly moving piece about one of rock and jazz's greatest drumming ancestors, Ginger Baker.

Ginger Baker is known as the drummer who could keep perfect time... and so he has inspired many drummers.... but those drummers are keen to point out that they didn't get their inspiration from him about how to lead their lives, because, fundamentally, he was - and still is - brutishly selfish and sociopathic. However, all that makes for one compelling music documentary.

a good documentary movie to watch .. cerita atau lebih tepatnya dokumentasi kehidupan Drummer asal Inggris di masa kejayaannya sebagai musisi di tahun 1960-an, melibatkan berbagai opini-opini dari musisi-musisi terkenal seperti johhny rotten (sex pistol), Steward Copeland (the police). Carlos Santana dan Chad Smith (RHCP) tentang Ginger Baker dan sepak terjangnya di dunia musik .. yang suka musik . ini salah satu film dokumentasi yang bagus buat ditonton .. :)

The storyline is well thought out, well planned and well-humored of how the way it's edited. Tells the story of this legendary drummer and yet doesn't get all melodramatic about it. The use of animation to tell the story is also a fantastic touch. And of course...love the music

A 2012 documentary on the life of drummer Ginger Baker. For anyone who loved (or lived during) the music of Cream and Blind Faith, it is must viewing. Interviews with his former bandmates, wifes, kids, and the man himself.

This documentary aims to be about Ginger Baker, though its most successful when its just about the musical experience, jazz, and the beginnings of rock.

I did not know a lot about Ginger Baker before seeing this film, but have an appreciation for his work if not his personal life. An interesting biopic with a creative approach to compiling the interviews and photos.

Saw this at the Boston Independent Film Festival. It was GREAT! Ginger is a legend, and the movie is really well done. Can't wait to see it again.
