Gimme Danger

GIMME DANGER is a documentary about proto-punk Iggy Pop and his band The Stooges, who burst out of Detroit in the late 60’s making music that was rawer and rougher than anything you heard on the radio. Of course, that sort of guaranteed that the stooges never got played on the radio. Jim Jarmusch structures his film around interviews with Iggy and other surviving members of the stooges, proceeding more or less chronologically. Jarmusch’s most distinctive touch is a playful one: He constantly cuts away from stories to footage illustrating just about every pop culture reference that pops up, from THE ADDAMS FAMILY to John Wayne. It gives the film a jokey but appropriately chaotic feel, which works for a band that stirred up and thrived on chaos. (Steve Pond)
