Jim Jarmusch: "Gimme Danger" - Story of The Stooges

Jim Jarmusch directing a documentary about The Stooges. What could possibly go wrong? Find out when it hits the theaters on October 28th. He interviewed all the survivors, unearthed rare footage and made into a cohesive story of sorts: Gimme Danger - Story of The Stooges.

No other band in rock’n’roll history has rivaled The Stooges’ combination of heavy primal throb, spiked psychedelia, blues-a-billy grind, complete with succinct angst-ridden lyrics, and a snarling, preening leopard of a front man who somehow embodies Nijinsky, Bruce Lee, Harpo Marx, and Arthur Rimbaud. There is no precedent for The Stooges, while those inspired by them are now legion.

GIMME DANGER 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. Like the Stooges and their music, GIMME DANGER is a little wild, messy, emotional, funny, primitive, and sophisticated in the most unrefined way. Long live The Stooges!"
