Gimme Danger

Formed in 1967 in Ann Arbor, Michigan in the midst of a counterculture revolution, The Stooges were a rock band fronted by Iggy Pop, whose aggressive performance style laid the groundwork for punk and alternative rock in subsequent decades. Their music fused rock with R&B, blues and free jazz and live performances frequently courted controversy as a result of Pop's stage antics such as exposing his privates to the crowd or smearing his bare chest with food products. Jim Jarmusch's affectionate yet restrained documentary puts the band's trials and tribulations in musical and political context, including an in-depth interview with the charismatic front man.
