No. 99: Craig Baldwin

Forget about Sumatran coffee blends, lab-concocted energy drinks or full-bore action flicks. If you need a pick-me-up that'll spark your cerebral cortex for hours, simply engage Craig Baldwin in conversation.

The radical, tenacious force behind the long-running Mission District bastion of underground film, Other Cinema, Baldwin is a creative programmer and an obsessive filmmaker. He's also a verbal whirling dervish who'd be a splendid model for a San Francisco superhero comic — any graphic novelists listening? — albeit one with a flashier wardrobe.
