Beware of Mr. Baker


Director: Jay Bulger

IMDB: Ginger Baker looks back on his musical career with Cream and Blind Faith; his introduction to Fela Kuti; his self-destructive patterns and losses of fortune; and his current life inside a fortified South African compound.

Rotten Tomates: Free of the hagiographic overtones that dog many documentary profiles, Beware of Mr. Baker presents a clear-eyed, thoroughly gripping look at one of rock's greatest -- and most personally problematic -- musicians.

Released: 17 May 2013

IMDB: 7.5
Rotten Tomates: 98%
