Gimme Danger

Jim Jarmusch directs an in-depth documentary look at iconic punk rockers The Stooges, fronted by the incomparable Iggy Pop.

"Emerging from Ann Arbor Michigan amidst a countercultural revolution, The Stooges' powerful and aggressive style of rock-n-roll blew a crater in the musical landscape of the late 1960s. Assaulting audiences with a blend of rock, blues, R&B, and free jazz, the band planted the seeds for what would be called punk and alternative rock in the decades that followed. Jim Jarmusch’s new film chronicles the story of The Stooges, one of the greatest rock-n-roll bands of all time.

Gimme Danger presents the context of The Stooges emergence musically, culturally, politically, historically, and relates their adventures and misadventures while charting their inspirations and the reasons behind their initial commercial challenges, as well as their long-lasting legacy."

The film is carefully assembled, full of great 16mm period footage and steeped in a grasp of rock history, yet it’s far from a knockout; it lacks the layered grandeur of a punk doc like “The Filth and the Fury.”

A conventional music doc about an extremely unconventional group ...

"Gimme Danger" is essentially a family album assembled by an enamoured outsider.

Two seminal Stooges album titles — 'Fun House' and 'Raw Power' — sum up this film's appeal.

The Stooges' story is a natural fit for the silver screen. Unfortunately, superfan Jim Jarmusch's love letter to them does not quite do it justice.
