Aroview: Prodigious drummer Ginger Baker reflects on his explosive but chequered musical career that peaked with Cream and Blind Faith, but that was marred by self-destructive patterns and losses of fortune.
Film-maker Jay Bulger braves insults and even physical abuse in spending time with the notoriously anti-social Baker at his home within a fortified compound in South Africa, capturing a compulsively entertaining figure in the annals of rock, aided by an abundance of historical footage and animated reconstructions. Interviews include Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce, John Lydon, and three of his four wives.

4 stars (Very Good) Ginger Baker is not admirable; very self-centered but happy to use others. Unacceptable attitude to loyal wives and loving children. Great footage from little-known performances and personal interviews. Lacks analysis of his technique. But recommended.~Sandy
