Beware of Mr. Baker
Ginger Baker is known for playing in Cream and Blind Faith, but the world's greatest drummer didn’t hit his stride until 1972, when he arrived in Nigeria and discovered Fela Kuti's Afrobeat. After leaving Nigeria, Ginger returned to his pattern of drug-induced self-destruction, and countless groundbreaking musical works, eventually settling in South Africa, where the 73-year-old lives with his young bride and 39 polo ponies. This documentary includes interviews with Eric Clapton, Steve Winwood, Carlos Santana and more. Beware of Mr. Baker! With every smash of the drum is a man smashing his way through life.

(de) wrote: A GREAT new Horror film. A lot of fun. Scary and original.
(it) wrote: "Amer" is an incoherent mess of a movie that suggests far more than it ever gets around to delivering. As far as I can tell, it involves Ana(Marie Bos) returning to the family home for the first time as an adult. As a child, she(Cassandra Foret) is haunted by the death of her grandfather(Bernard Marbaix) whose corpse she steals a fob watch from, breaking one of his fingers in the process which should give her at least a few years worth of bad luck. Before that can kick in, she sees something much more disturbing which is her mother(Bianca Maria D'Amato) and father(Jean-Michel Vovk) having sex.(There is a middle section but I have completely forgotten what happened there.) Instead of providing any background or context, "Amer" is just a complete exercise in style without the relevant skill to put it to good use. I mean, somebody sure likes their filters. The editing is almost as bad but at least the extreme close-ups of eyes could suggest some sort of voyeurism.
(ru) wrote: Not much longer than an episode of Dispatches or Horizon, this cautionary tale was both transfixing and stunning in its impact. Documentary at its best.
(de) wrote: I like Donald Faison alot, so that definitally upped my enjoyment of this one. Not saying it's not really good on it's own though. Really good soundtrack and characters. This movie makes me hate cops.
(de) wrote: my God this movie is sooo stupid and pointless and 1 hour and 45 minutes too long.
(it) wrote: Bob Fosse's seminal work. Brilliant adaptation of Isherwood and of his own Broadway play. There are no flaws here. Liza Minnelli and Joel Grey will be forever etched into your mind. Brilliant filmmaking both behind and in front of the camera.
