Lewis' film [The Tears Of A Clown] is masterfully shot, the imagery and symbolism creating a tense and ominous atmosphere which is only broken by the intensely tragic final scene. "[The] Tears of a Clown" provides an uneasy climax to an excitingly original exhibition.

It's a great feeling to be working with [Gareth] as one of his producers [on The Baker].
-- Damian Lewis (brother), Variety, March 24, 2006
Itís what Garethís done within the details of the story [of The Baker] that makes it so exciting. Itís just superior to almost anything Iíve read -- and Iíve read more scripts than all of us put together.

We always had this romantic idea that we should do the film together. Because he's my brother I know this sounds biased, but The Baker is funnier than any comedy I've read in the last however-many years. ... I'm enjoying it tremendously working with him. It is a little bit of a dream come true.

The other highlight of the [RiverRun International Film Festival] program is Normal for Norfolk, a dark British comedy about a man who breaks free on Halloween while he's being transferred from one insane asylum to another. Very funny stuff.

[Tremblant Film Festival programmer Daniaile Jarry is] nuts about Gareth Lewis's Welsh-British comedy The Baker.

Gareth was a far cleverer child than I was. ... When Gareth is sitting around a table in a pub with friends, he naturally takes centre stage, but it's not something he consciously seeks. He's incredibly entertaining and amusing, but there's a softness about him and a quietness, which means he doesn't impose himself. ... As a director [on The Baker,] he was humble and responsive and he listened, and the set was a very happy place.

Gareth Lewis: One to watch.
-- Gideon Spanier (article author), Evening Standard, February 25, 2008
[The Baker] is a funny little gem.
-- Jessica Mellor (article author), The Mirror, February 29, 2008
We had a fabulous time making [The Baker,] and I am delighted with the way it turned out. ... Gareth is much more mature than me so it didn't feel odd at all taking directions from him.
-- Damian Lewis (brother), The Telegraph, March 23, 2008
Fans of cheeky British humor should enjoy [The Baker]. ... Lewis' first film has a lot of energy and at ... it never outwears its welcome.

I feel incredibly lucky. There were times when I'd romanticise making a feature film with my brother. He'd written a film and was going to direct and I was going to act in it. It seemed an incredibly privileged thing to be doing.
-- Damian Lewis (brother), Total Film, May 2008
The only thing better than a black comedy is an over the top, absurd, and wickedly funny black comedy. The Baker, starring Damian Lewis, is one hell of a funny black comedy. ... The Baker is a hilarious movie. ... The movie is comically absurd to the end. The Baker is one black comedy movie you will not regret buying [on DVD].

[The Baker] is a funny, easy to watch film.
