American filmmaker Jim Jarmusch's documentary love letter to punk icons Iggy Pop and his band, The Stooges. Michigan-born Iggy's youthful music career wavered, until he found his Stooges soulmates in Dave Alexander (bass), and brothers Ron (guitar) and Scott Asheton (drums). Three ground-breaking albums and just a few years later, the band was literally falling apart. Iggy gleefully relates the story of those crazy years from "I Wanna Be Your Dog" to "Raw Power." Gimme Danger is brimful of music, clips and anecdotes, including Bowie, Nico and the crowd-surfing Iggy himself.

"Talking to Jarmusch behind the camera like the friend that he is, Iggy reminisces about meeting brothers Ron and Scott Asheton, who played guitar and drums, respectively, and about the band?s initial efforts at composing music that was deliberately antimelodic, if not downright atonal."
New York Times

"[GIMME DANGER is] plenty entertaining and includes many moments of foaming-at-the-mouth musical fury."

3 stars out of 4 -- "Jarmusch lays out the Stooges story in a coherent, linear fashion....GIMME DANGER shows that Stooges music, like all rock, had deep roots in black music, albeit a black music that did not get heard much outside of certain regions of the country."
Los Angeles Times
11/03/2016
"With their hard-driving riffs and monosyllabic lyrics, their free jazz drone-scape and the crazy undulations of frontman Pop, the proto-punk Stooges stood about as far outside the music mainstream as you could while still recording for major labels."
Washington Post
11/03/2016
"On the cusp of 70, Iggy is as lithe and limber as ever, and in GIMME DANGER he emerges as an exceptionally erudite and thoughtful artist as well."
Boston Globe
11/03/2016
"It?s essential rock history from the men who made it, skipping over Iggy?s solo years and concentrating on the lore and legacy of one of the bedrock rock groups."
Empire

3 stars out of 5 -- "[I]n the shape of Iggy Pop GIMME DANGER has a genial, natural raconteur whose stories -- 'I went to Detroit with a tab of mescaline and a shovel' begins one -- are impossible to resist."
The Guardian
11/20/2016
3 stars out of 5 -- "With this punchy documentary, Jim Jarmusch makes a fairly persuasive case that the Stooges, fronted by snake-hipped rock legend Iggy Pop, were the greatest band of all time."
