Critic Reviews for Beware Of Mr. Baker
It's refreshing to watch a music doc, especially one with such intimate access to its subject, in which barely anyone is unreservedly polite about the person in question.
Ginger Baker has been revealed as a major talent, an innovator and an unlikely survivor. And a not very nice guy.
Ginger Baker is, and was, a train wreck. Yet this film, like Baker's onstage playing, is always riveting, and something you can't look away from.
The takeaway: great musician, deficient family man, taxing friend and bandmate, excellent documentary subject.
Audience Reviews for Beware Of Mr. Baker
"Meet Ginger Baker, the man...the myth...the hero..." Thus begins a story that is hardly inspirational or uplifting. But does it need to be told? You bet your ass!!! A brilliant & genuine look at a rock star. Although not the one you would think. We drummers are a modest bunch, so it's nice to see one of us at the forefront for a change. Just sit back & watch. It's always the quiet ones...
A boring look into the life of perhaps the most overrated drummer in rock history. Just because you played next to Clapton does not mean you were worthy.
Beware Of Mr. Bakers inside look at one of rocks most influential drummers never falls into standard documentary tropes, instead it relies on honest accounts that let you judge Ginger Bakers mentality.
