A documentary and piercing look at the story of the creation of the legendary rock band The Stooges and the biography of its leader Iggy Pop. Using archival footage, interviews and performances of the team, the film looks in detail at the path covered by the musicians: from the first concerts to the world recognition and universal adoration, the best days of the group and internal conflicts that eventually led to the disintegration. It's an honest story about how full of energy and rebellious spirit young guys were able to turn the notion of rock music at the end of the troubled 60s.
Directed and screenwriter «Gimme Danger. The story of Iggy and The Stooges was performed by the cult Jim Jarmusch, who for 6 years painstakingly created an outstanding film about an outstanding team and its members.
