Storyline

ONE BAD CAT is about the transformative role art plays in the tumultuous life of 82 year-old, African-American, renowned "outsider" artist Reverend Albert Wagner. He has been a lightening rod for controversy his entire life. Racism, ego and lust led him to the brink of ruin. Miraculously turned onto religion at age 50, he was inspired by God to paint, and become a famous artist for a mostly White clientele. From a racist Southern upbringing, in his later years his artwork railed against the lifestyles of members of the African-American community, which created as many detractors as champions. Near the film's conclusion, an ailing Albert comes to terms with his checkered past. Was Albert's penitence real and did he achieve redemption through his art? Written by Thomas G. Miller

One Bad Cat is a Revelation!
6 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The visually stunning documentary One Bad Cat really is one bad movie. Meaning, good! This remarkable movie is a detailed and sometimes shocking portrait of the American folk artist Reverend Albert Wagner. In a house in East Cleveland that became a work of art itself, Reverend Albert Wagner created a body of art that is both extraordinary and startling.

Director Thomas G. Miller has brought this one-of-a-kind artist to rich and vivid life. The editing and pace of this movie is just wonderful. You feel as though the artist himself were taking you on a private tour not only of his Art but also the devils and angels who have tormented him and saved him.

This movie is an astonishing work of Art. Bravo, Thomas G. Miller!
