Music is essential to each and every film by American auteur Jim Jarmusch (Only Lovers Left Alive, Stranger Than Paradise). With Gimme Danger, Jarmusch follows his 1997 Neil Young documentary Year of the Horse with another portrait of a musical legend, Iggy Pop. Appropriately raucous and exciting, Gimme Danger—its title a nod to both The Stooges' song and the famed Rolling Stones documentary Gimme Shelter—chronicles Pop and his seminal punk band The Stooges from their early days in Ann Arbor, Michigan, in the late 1960s through their multiple breakups and rotating band members and eventually the recording of their classic album, Raw Power. After decades of friendship and even appearances in two of the director's films, Dead Man and Coffee and Cigarettes, Pop offers Jarmusch an all-access glimpse into the world of a true musical icon with candid discussions of stardom, performance, and—most importantly—rock & roll.
