Movie Info

Filmmaker Thomas G. Miller explores the art of Reverend Albert Wagner, a self-trained modern primitive whose turbulent life prompted him to take up painting at the age of fifty, and whose redemptive works highlight the many struggles he has faced while attempting to seek salvation. Born into poverty, Wagner's marriage failed due to infidelity shortly before he was charged with child molestation. His life in shambles, the untrained artist made it his mission to combat his malaise with creativity.

With One Bad Cat: The Reverend Albert Wagner Story and a subject this colorful, all a nonfiction filmmaker has to do is get out of the way.

Directed by Thomas G. Miller, One Bad Cat brings fresh light to the artist Albert Wagner.

Confessions like "God and art saved the Reverend Albert" beg for more interrogation than director Thomas G. Miller seems to have in him.

Miller neither defends or apologizes: His remarkably candid footage (extending all the way to Wagner's deathbed and beyond) and interviews leave the man's sincerity (and his collectors') as open to scrutiny as his art.

A compelling bio-pic about one bad mother (shut your mouth!) who could have written a Bible for today's ghetto gangstas on how to be a player.

The film finds its footing whenever Johnny Coleman, professor of African-American Studies and Fine Arts at Oberlin College in Ohio, speaks openly about Wagner's troublesome images and the appeal those images have for whites.
