View the Poster for Jim Jarmusch’s Stooges Documentary, ‘Gimme Danger’

iggy and the stooges

Jim Jarmusch’s new documentary about Iggy and the Stooges, Gimme Danger, premiered at Cannes this week. Jarmusch told Indiewire that the film “is more an ‘essay’ than a document. It’s our love letter to possibly the greatest band in rock’n’roll history, and presents their story, their influences and their impact, complete with some never-before-seen footage and photographs.” Jarmusch is a master of style, and his films are dense with great music (not to mention musicians) – so he seems like the perfect choice for the film.

View the poster below. If you’re interested in a riveting primer on the Stooges, read Please Kill Me, which sits at the very top of my list of the best rock and roll books ever.
