3 stars out of 4 -- Jarmusch lays out the Stooges story in a coherent, linear fashion....GIMME DANGER shows that Stooges music, like all rock, had deep roots in black music, albeit a black music that did not get heard much outside of certain regions of the country.
3 stars out of 5 -- With this punchy documentary, Jim Jarmusch makes a fairly persuasive case that the Stooges, fronted by snake-hipped rock legend Iggy Pop, were the greatest band of all time.
Talking to Jarmusch behind the camera like the friend that he is, Iggy reminisces about meeting brothers Ron and Scott Asheton, who played guitar and drums, respectively, and about the band’s initial efforts at composing music that was deliberately antimelodic, if not downright atonal.
3 stars out of 5 -- [I]n the shape of Iggy Pop GIMME DANGER has a genial, natural raconteur whose stories -- 'I went to Detroit with a tab of mescaline and a shovel' begins one -- are impossible to resist.
[GIMME DANGER is] plenty entertaining and includes many moments of foaming-at-the-mouth musical fury.
New York Times
It’s essential rock history from the men who made it, skipping over Iggy’s solo years and concentrating on the lore and legacy of one of the bedrock rock groups.
With their hard-driving riffs and monosyllabic lyrics, their free jazz drone-scape and the crazy undulations of frontman Pop, the proto-punk Stooges stood about as far outside the music mainstream as you could while still recording for major labels.
Los Angeles Times
Jim Jarmusch directed this in-depth profile of the legendary American rock band the Stooges and their charismatic frontman Iggy Pop. The documentary explores both their initial impact on the musical landscape of the late '60s, and their lasting influence on everything from punk to alternative rock. GIMME DANGER premiered at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival as a part of their Midnight Screenings.
