Allan Arkush on

Gimme Danger

Released 2016
Distributor Magnolia Pictures

A labor of love for director Jim Jarmusch, 2016’s Gimme Danger charts the ascension of punk pioneers The Stooges. The film is a playful mix of animation, found footage, and newly filmed material giving equal weight to all the band members—still, lead singer Iggy Pop maintains his foothold as the group’s charismatic leader.
