GIMMIE DANGER (Jim Jarmusch 2016). Iggy Pop and the Stooges have not had their music doc before, but the only thing that is not routine about this is the director's name; the film isn't as noteworthy as some have found his also current or coming Adam Driver vehicle Paterson to be. Narrated throughout by band vocalist and leader Pop, whose real name is James Newell Osterberg, Jr., it has archival footage, talking heads who're other band members and managers, and a description of his whole career from a boy drummer to rock legend whose comebacks keep on coming. Pop's groups influenced and partook of a range of muisc including rock, punk rock, art rock, and hard rock and associated bands include The Trolls, Sum 41, The Nymphs, The Iguanas, David Bowie, Josh Homme, Slash, Rob Duprey, Deborah Harry, Blondie, Tom Waits, Henry Rollins, Lou Reed, and The Cramps. His performances are noted for his wiry always naked torso and wild gyrations on stage. At 69 he is as wiry and gnarly as ever. This film was included in the Special Event section of the NYFF, a kind gesture since his Paterson was in the Main Slate. Watched 8 Nov. 2016 at IFC Center.
