Overview

Filmmaker Thomas G. Miller explores the art of Reverend Albert Wagner, a self-trained modern primitive whose turbulent life prompted him to take up painting at the age of fifty, and whose redemptive works highlight the many struggles he has faced while attempting to seek salvation. Born into poverty, Wagner's marriage failed due to infidelity shortly before he was charged with child molestation. His life in shambles, the untrained artist made it his mission to combat his malaise with creativity. The resulting art was deeply personal, and sometimes controversial. While few filmmakers have been able to gain direct access to Wanger in the past, director Miller offers notable insight into both the artist and the debates that his works have inspired between collectors and critics.

    One Bad Cat is One Bad Movie! Director Tom Miller Has Created a Movie Gem!

    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 Tom 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, Tom Miller!
