Gimme Danger Trailer: Jim Jarmusch Tackles Iggy and the Stooges


Jim Jarmusch has a pair of acclaimed new films that have been touring the festival circuit this year: the Adam Driver drama Paterson and the documentary Gimme Danger. This is only the second time Jarmusch has dipped his toes into the non-fiction world (the first being the 1997 Neil Young concert film Year of the Horse) and Gimme Danger also happens to be a music-oriented doc. The film focuses on the legendary rock n roll band The Stooges, widely hailed as one of the forefathers of punk rock and renowned for the stage antics of their iconic frontman, Mr. Iggy Pop. While I don’t think this the first documentary to cover the band, it certainly could be the definitive one as it explores the band’s importance “musically, culturally, politically, historically” while also combining vintage footage with new interviews. Amazon Studios and Magnolia Pictures will release Gimme Danger in New York and Detroit on Oct. 28th before going nationwide on Nov. 4th. Check out the trailer after the jump and let us know what you think.
