Really really interesting insight into Ginger Baker! Engrossing and brilliant.

Very good doc. Editing is lame in a few spots but other than that it's solid. Everyone is extremely honest, which is always the most important thing. Always had respect for him, but never knew he was such a bizarre and fascinating character.

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.

What a drummer! What a life! What an arsehole!

A great documentary about the best drummer in the world with the worst personality in the world.

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!

Really interesting and fun documentary. Basically the life story of a genius psycho drummer.

Clearly a very unpleasant man but a brilliant drummer. I loved this documentary.

He seems to like his drums...not a desperately nice man all told

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.

This movie is a total thrill from start to finish. The music is unbelievable, the art and ponies superb - cant recommend more highly!

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.

The genius drummer Ginger Baker is as watchable as a crazy kitten Internet video and just as enigmatic...

An amazing talent and equally amazing douchebag! The story is pushed through by journalist Jay Bulger and highlights the many musical adventures of Ginger with some beautiful animation David Bell and Joe Scarpulla...

If you like great musical documentaries, you need to see this film... Oh and Lars Bloody Ulrich shows up as per EVERY other rock music doc.
