Aro Recommended Beware of Mr. Baker


USA 2012, 100 minutes
Dir. Jay Bulger
Rating: [Exempt]
Genres: Music, Documentary


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.
