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. Director Jim Jarmusch’s cinematic tribute chronicles the story of The Stooges, one of the greatest rock-n-roll bands of all time, and its iconic front man Iggy Pop. Gimme Danger presents the context of The Stooges’ emergence musically, culturally, politically and 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. Like The Stooges and their music, the film is a little wild, messy, emotional, funny, primitive and sophisticated in the most unrefined way. From the music-loving director of Paterson, Only Lovers Left Alive, Down By Law, Mystery Train and Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai.
