Gimme Danger Trailer: Jim Jarmusch Wants You to Know the Stooges Are the ‘Greatest Rock ‘n’ Roll Band Ever’


If you are one of the legions of Stooges fans who've been shouting for decades that Iggy Pop & Co. are wildly underrated rock gods (even despite the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction), allow Jim Jarmusch to lead your cause. The director has a new documentary all about the Stooges called Gimme Danger, wherein he interrogates (his words, not ours) Iggy and other figures of the era about how the Stooges became what Jarmusch calls "the greatest rock 'n' roll band ever." As you can imagine, their insane live shows had a lot to do with that, as did the band's early "Communist" work ethic, all of which are highlighted in the doc's first trailer. In addition to Iggy's narration, archival interviews with the band's late members are also put to good use. The Amazon Studios doc opens everywhere on November 4.
