Beware Of Mr Baker (15)
Dir: Jay Bulger
Cast: Ginger Baker, Eric Clapton, Stewart Copeland, Jack Bruce
Ipswich Jazz Festival@IFT Legendary Cream drummer Ginger Baker was blessed with a preternatural musicianship, which he condenses down to being all about timing, but cursed by a self- destructive drive which has seen him wrestle a prodigious drug habit, family implosion and penury. A searing portrait of a man in free fall doing his best to destroy any human relationship he can as he drums on into personal oblivion, this is a stunning film.
