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 GIMME DANGER 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.

“As fun as it is illuminating. A witty, wildly affectionate tribute.” – David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter

“ESSENTIAL VIEWING FOR STOOGES FANS. Iggy is like a human painting of compelling style and charisma.” – Nikola Grozdanovic, The Playlist

“A compelling and detailed diary of everything that made the Stooges what they were. Iggy is a wittily acerbic yet clear-eyed observer of his own follies.” – Owen Gleiberman, Variety

“Iggy is an entertaining, wry and commanding tour guide to a rock story of guts and glory and excess and failure.” – Steve Pond, The Wrap

“An exciting testament to the survival power of the Stooges’ music. Stooges fans will find plenty to enthuse about in the film’s ample coverage of a little-documented career.” – Jonathan Romney, Screen Daily
